Access Issue: 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!
Description [Suggest Change]
Long Dong's famous "deep water solo" route. Others probably could exist, but with the powerful riptides it's not really a good idea. This one is in a self-contained pool, with rocks around it that break the waves and ease the tide. There are a million variations depending on what kind of fun you like: you can traverse in from the left, you can start up directly, you can climb the easy dihedral to access the top and jump off, you can climb right across the face to the nose and up, or you can climb up the overhanging face on the right side of the nose. All stylish sends end after succumbing to the temptation.

The pool on your left just as you come out of Puffer's Pass. If you're looking at the Clocktower, it's right behind you.
