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!
DescriptionThis route was published in a Rock & Ice magazine long ago, which was the original inspiration for Matt Robertson to come to Taiwan...
Start the same as for Dragon with Matches, clipping way left. At some non-intuitive moment, step over to the left onto the blank face. Balance your way up a featureless slab with blunt aretes on your left and right to a good hold. Continue into an awesome but short right-leaning crack up to a thin horizontal. Make a few powerful moves left to get to the arete, then slap and edge your way to the last desperate throw.
