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!
DescriptionQuite possibly the best at the grade.
A huge tube marks the start of this climb, the 2nd bolted line of the 5.10s on the black and yellowed Old Man Wall. Another, even bigger one is halfway up the route right before a crux.
Solid, sustained 5.10d climbing on good crimps and big holds at diagonal angles with less awesome feet force you to use clever positioning and body tension to gain upwards progress.
Resistant all the way to the anchors, one or two possibly loose jug-blocks mar this otherwise incredible line. While the climb is 99% solid, the 1% of slightly loose blocks mean the belayer is advised to wear a helmet and watch the climber at all times.
