Description

Another nice technical steep slab route for the area! Start 15' left of Sticks and Stones below the obvious straight up flake/crack. The line follows the bolt line to the left.

Start up a 10' right facing corner to a small ledge/stance. Place gear high in the right arching right facing corner. Pull straight onto the face (5.8) and surmount the bulge to a stance (bolt). Climb up a short slab to the base of the headwall (bolt). Finesse your way up the sustained crux headwall on thin holds past a third bolt, and mantle onto a sloping ledge to clip the bolt anchor. 60'

Location

Sticks and Stones/AP Treat area

Protection

Lots of gear options to start, then 3 bolts to a bolt anchor

Nice!

Did you guys bolt this on lead or rappel? Not a loaded question; just curious.

Unfortunately it was rap bolted. It would have been a great one to try and hand drill on the lead! It was way to hot, I could barely stay on. I have climbed it again since and wish I had waited for the better temps...
I cleaned it and didn't want to leave it sitting to long, it's cathedral! Jul 30, 2014
