Description

This is a former trad route that has since been bolted. It's a slab climb typical of jackson Falls, although with more features than you might expect. A little sketchy for the new leader, stick clip recommended in this case. Once established on the route, the first three bolts are pretty easy to clip. Keep moving right and you might need your belayer to describe the feet. Once you establish moving upward, it only gets easier to the top.

Location

On the right just to the left of the arete on the obvious slab of the actual Battle Axe Tower

Protection

6 bolts (?) and shuts. Well protected, to the point of some rope drag.

According to Eric Ulner's Vertical Heartland guidebook, this climb used to be the way to the summit to work the harder routes to the left. In those days, they led it as a spicy 5.8 R trad route, so theoretically you could still do that to stick it to all those sport climbers.

There's some weird form of no-untie permadraw for lowering at the chains, but they are worn and in need of replacement (or just removal). Use at your own risk. Mar 5, 2018
