Rap from Plaque-less bolts about twenty feet right(climber's left) of Heroes and Zero's anchor, and about twenty feet left of the 12a's(Storming Intrepid? It has a plaque) anchor. Trend to climber's left as you rap in, otherwise you will miss the anchors, which are shared with the 12a (maybe not the right anchors? Petro's guidebook is vague).

Climb up and left past ten or so bolts through a few technical cruxes, with cool sidepulls and crimps. The climb is on like donkey kong until you get to a stance up on the slab above. You're not done until you jam the dihedral(gear here) and squirm up the surprisingly awkward top out past two more bolts.

We felt this climb was quite a bit tougher than Heroes, but quite enjoyable. My partner snapped a hold getting to the first bolt and almost factor2-d. Be careful.


Rap from bolts twenty feet to skier's right of Heroes' bolts. Trend to climber's left as you rap in (follow the bolt line). Its a bit of a pendulum to get to the starting bolts.


Plenty of QDs, and a single rack should do ya.

Simply amazing line, my new favorite Freemont face climb! If you are planning on leading the route, rap from the anchor on top of storming intrepid since it deposits you at the same belay without having to swing around or clip any directionals. This will also keep your fixed line out of your way while leading out. Some of the bolts are getting quite rusted on this guy. May 5, 2014
