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!
DescriptionP1 - 5.10a
Start out left with some dangerously loose blocks for the first few bolts. The route heads back to the right through a small dihedral - more looseness - and up to a small grassy belay ledge with 2 bolt anchor (2 new titanium bolts).
P2 - 5.10b
Follow the face directly up and get to a slabby face with small crimps. Stay left on the big dihedral for an easier option and then traverse back right along a decent crack. For the crux, clip the bolt just over big roof and step out into the abyss to the right for OK crimps and a stretched right foot. Enjoy an easy slab to comfortable ledge with two new titanium anchors.
Rappel down and STAY LEFT to make sure you reach the first belay station. Position your rope so it doesnt get caught on the little tree below the bolts when you pull it through. If you swing out too far right and cant reach the first belay station, a 60 meter rope will get you within 2 meters of the ground (not advised).
