Description

A varied and long route, "The Rabbit" climbs great rock and keeps you thinking, changing styles of rock and climbing along the way.
Start directly under the bolt, move left to the arete at the bolt and balance your way up. Powerful lock-offs on the left side of the arete lead to a stance and finally, some gear (10+ R). Up the mini dihedral then traverse right to a stance under the second bolt, take a few deep breaths and engage the awesome overhanging face above. Clip the 3rd bolt and make a memorable move left and up to some cool chickenheads (crux). Plug in some gear, climb the tricky dark rock then mantle onto a ledge. Climb the crack then head left and up in search of holds and gear to a 2 bolt anchor. Great climb!

Location

The first arete climbers left of honeymooners ladders.
Make sure you have a full 60m rope as the traversing nature of the route ads to its length.

Protection

Double cams to #2. Bring 4 or 5 2' runners. 3 bolts. Bolted anchor.

This climb is so gnarly. I tried leading this a few times this season and got smacked around a good bit. Don't take this thing lightly - the route finding is little tricky and the first 30 feet are heads up. That said, its an awesome awesome route. Do it! Nov 28, 2016
