Description

Instead of the 4th class scrambling going up and to the left, there is a set of 8 bolts that get you directly to the new bolted anchors mid-way. The route is a bit dusty in bits, but the rock makes for easy step-ups between clips. To climb the rest of it, see the Classic route's description. [Route only showed up recently, would love to credit whoever put it up as well as it's proper name]

Location

Right in front of the right tree, to the right of the classic scramble

Protection

8 Bolts to anchor.

Agree with prior two comments. I don't see any reason to do the "classic" meandering option with this section bolted. Straight-forward and direct approach to midway anchor. Even though this is a short multi, be sure to establish non-verbal communication signals with partner as it is difficult to hear with freeway noise/gorge wind. Also, we careful of poison oak, esp. near the base of the route. And afterward, go take a dip in the Columbia and cool off with the nudies! Jul 10, 2017

This is the best way to access the midway anchors. And using this start also allows you to do the entire climb in one pitch as well. Jun 14, 2017

This route adds a healthy pitch of climbing to this otherwise all-too-brief route. Rock quality is often suspect, edges and ledges are dirty, and the bolts are some budget bullshit, but it still makes for a worthwhile approach to the upper pitch. The scramble is super easy, so if you're not in a hurry, take this line.

Route can be rapped with a 60m rope. Aug 14, 2014
