Description

Another must-do for the Sylvan area. Thin, well-protected face climbing to start, followed by bigger bolt spaces and a tricky transition into the shallow left facing dihedral. Finagle small gear placements while stemming. Run-out slab for the finish. Done ground-up with a power drill. BHCC replaced all hardware 9/15/13.

Location

30' left of Lander Turkey Shoot. Start on rib that turns into chimney then bust out right onto face. First bolt is a little high, may want a #3 or #4 to protect. Double rope rap.

Protection

7 bolts
Single rack; micro - .75
Chain anchors

It seems to me that there was a very solid 0.5 Tricam (pink) placement in the transition on this route. Sep 11, 2014

There is fat bolt that protects the transition. Good gear once established in the dihedral. Sep 12, 2014
