Description

I would have given 1 star if it had an anchor, but the traverse is sketch! It didn't look like topping out was a good option either.

Per nate post: there is an anchor, you have to top out, and it's easier to climb the run out to the top than traverse to the anchors on Warrior's Tears. I climbed it today, I topped out, and there are two steel cables with a steel ring. This is probably not very good for setting up a TR but good for rapping off the route.

Location

This is the 3rd route from the left.

Protection

It has a mix of homemade hangers, a couple of new bolts, and an old piton. There are 7 clips in all. There is no anchor! Traverse to the top of Warrior's Tears.

The description of this route is not entirely accurate. There is an anchor, you just have to top out. It's not the best anchor for top roping, but it works good for rapping off the route. If 5.10 is your upper limit, then the runout might be a little spicy, but I don't really think it's an R rated route, but whatever, I only commented to mention that the anchors are up there and it's worth climbing once anyway. I almost avoided it because of the description, but I'm glad I put in a lap on it. Jul 16, 2016
