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!
A sustained, technical face climb with many eliminate variations. Start up the slabby rounded arete or just scramble up either side to the wide horizontal. There will be a wall behind you most of the time, and stemming out to this is certainly acceptable for those pushing into this grade. Pull through neat features that gradually get smaller as the overhang increases, until you can throw for a big jug on the right-hand arete. Keep it together for a bit more technical but ever-slabbier climbing to the anchor.
In the middle of the Black Wall, locate the two mirrored overhanging faces between Nugget and I Love Taiwan. This is the less challenging, paler of the two sport climbs here.
