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]
Start up a vertical, chunky face with awkward but fun movement. Mantel onto a narrow ledge, and continue up the slabby face to the first overhang. Pass it on the left. Continue up the steepening face and stay left when bolts appear to the right (Convenient, 5.9 bomb). Set yourself for some long pulls on good crimps to decent horizontals. This sequence is continuous, fun, and can be done several different ways that all involve airy moves. Anchor consists of two staggered bolts... you could always continue up two more bolts to the anchor of Very Inconvenient, which continues the clean pumpy fun.

Just outside the Bikini Cave, on the east-facing orange wall. Climbs through the golden block split by horizontals 40 feet up.
