Off the porch-like alcove in Lower Stoked Bowl is a slab that leads to an overhanging arete. Climb the first 6 bolts at easy 5.11 to an awkward to mount ledge for an awesome rest. From here, 2 more bolts protect the V6, progressively steeper and thinner boulder problem. There is a jug to finish and chains with fixed carabiners on top.


8 bolts to 2 bolt anchor with chains and fixed carabiners.

The upper arete on this route is very fun and worthy of the hike, I just wish it was longer. The lower section, climbing through the hollow death flakes is terrifying, those things are going to kill someone. As far as the grade, I think 12+ is more appropriate, since I did it onsight and I typically don't onsight 13a. Nice job, Scott! Sep 23, 2014
Awesome work, Kevin! Nice onsight! Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the grade vote, grading has always been a nebulous challenge for me. Sep 26, 2014

I agree with Kevin's thoughts, I quite enjoyed the top: good rock and interesting moves... have you considered bolting a direct start to the line that would add a bit of meat to the climb and avoid the death flakes of doom?

Anyhow, nice contribution, Scott, all in all, it's a nice line and well-graded.

I just bolted a couple lines to the right of this route, a 5.13ish line out the steep roof and a 5.11 just past it, which will make this a pretty cool spot.

On a side note, I saw someone removing some hangers from some of the high line anchors... I told them that they were for highlining, and he thought that perhaps they were someones "practice" bolts. Anyhow... I want you to know if you go back up there.... I think he stopped removing the bolts. Sep 27, 2014
Matt, glad you also enjoyed it! I got on your contributions last week. Thanks for putting in the work up there! and THANK YOU for stopping whomever has taken it upon themselves to continue stealing gear up there.... It's been a bit of a problem....

I didn't do the direct start due to the fact that it is seasonally wet. I tend to stay low on the slab and hit the arete early avoiding the chossy flakes, but thanks for cleaning them up!

Also, there is now another route to the left.... Developing nicely up there! Oct 2, 2014
