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 the left side of the cave, below the stone step down. Getting off the ground is the crux. Once up, cruise on huge holds to a ledge 20' up, then cruise s'more through some "rattlers" - loose but not coming out any time soon - to a horizontal from which you must build the trad anchor.
To access the trad anchor, walk a few steps down the stairs, then step out into a small horizontal below a bigger horizontal. Place a 4" piece in the big left-hand crack, and a .4" piece out to the right. There is a loose plate of rock between the two - don't place gear on this. Best to leave the tiger in its den.
