Description

The obvious falls in the gully. There are several lines (up to four) with the left side being stiffer (3+) and the right side having some mellower terrain. The route is longer than it looks from the bottom. The steeper part is about 100-120 ft and can be top-roped from trees or by building ice screw anchors.

Location

This is the first route on right as you descend in the Black Chasm gully.

Protection

Up to eight screws on lead. Rappel anchor on top. We top-roped left line from a tree anchor with a 70 m rope.

I do not see anything silly about the number of screws. It says "up to eight". Of course, it is variable. Some climbers choose to solo this route with packs when climbing out of the gorge instead of taking the steep trail. Apr 15, 2015
It's a bit silly to include in the route description how many screws this climb will take. It's highly variable, to say the least. Mar 10, 2015
