Description

The Dome Driver Manual states that a line with 2 bolts was first established on this boulder with no first ascentionist noted. This route was later retro-bolted by Bill Gooch with the approval of the Central Texas Climbing Committee.

Follow the line of bolts up the right side of the boulder. From the top anchors multiple ropes can be hung and many variations are possible, making this a really fun place to climb.



Location

This route is found on the right side of Lost Wall, which is the large trianglar boulder below Center Wall. Follow the Lost Wall/Center Wall trail to this large obvious boulder located very close to the Main Dome.

Protection

4 bolts and a double bolted top anchor. This route is well protected by Erock standards, but don't blow the clip up at the second bolt.

The route was first bolted on lead by a guy named Mark -- can't remember last name -- who worked at UPS in San Antonio. Late 1986 or early 1987. He hand drilled two quarter inch bolts about 10' apart while standing on crystals. I belayed him. Jul 3, 2017

This whole area does not see the traffic it deserves... but that makes it all the better. Great place to get away from the crowd. Event Horizon is a fantastic crystal route that will test your mental fortitude (clipping the semi-desperate second bolt). Must do. Worthwhile to leave a rope up and run some laps on the center of the Lost Wall which offers good training on friction and crystal face climbing. Jan 18, 2016
