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!
Description [Suggest Change]
At the back of the lane. Climb up to a perch below a seriously overhanging face. Pull through this on huge jugs to just below the v-groove exit in the roof. Set yourself up then make a cruxy throw to a jug in the groove. Keep your feet pasted, then find a way to layback up to the horizontal above. Step out right, then back left on an incredible undercling flake (protect here), then up to a thin slopey rail. A fall before the crux clip could be painful without the intermediate cam placement, hence the PG13 rating. Pull up to the ledge above through any number of cruxy combinations. Catch another breather before the final sequence up the slightly overhanging orange wall. A proud send.

At the back of the lane, up the face between the arete and the dihedral. Just outside the Birth Canal.
