Bolt Failures - Donations Help Details
Accelerated corrosion that targets stainless steel bolts (SCC) has caused multiple failures, including both anchor bolts on a route that a climber was being lowered off of. Please read the BOLTS note on the main page. You can also help the cause by visiting the Bivy during your stay and giving QX some reds, whites, or if youre feeling generous, some BLUES!
DescriptionOn a small perch of rock, you will have a crimpy face in front of you, and a 3" crack on the right. Either follow bolts straight up the face with lots of discontinuous finger cracks, or stay left and follow the dihedral. You can continue up the dihedral for the easiest (trad-protectable) finish or pull one technical move (10b) from a big pocket to some crimps and a rail. Then step up and clip the anchors.
You could also step right to the route Stairway to Heaven, which ends at the same anchor but goes up the big flakes and thin, shallow crack, then steps back left.
