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!
Start around a jumble of boulders, with a large platform up and to your right. Get up into the coral-like rock however you wish, and pull simple moves up into the roof. Pulling over the roof is easy, using jugs in the horizontal. Try to clip from this. The bolt sits almost flat above the triangular block, so use a long draw or a sling. Getting around the lip is the crux: it can be done a number of ways, all of them involving a balancy sequence. One way is to throw for a pebble at the top of the block, then step left. Prepare yourself for an overhanging sequence on big rails that is pumpy and athletic though straightforward. A few big final moves and you're at the horizontal from which you can clip the anchor.
The left side of the "Legend Wall." Just right of the black streak of Black Magic Woman and left of the golden/orange overhanging arete of Golden Legend.
