Description

Suzy Triangles starts a good 40 feet left of the big, elevator shaft (left of "Venkman"). Look for a pink, crystal dike in the wall. Start there. Climb a small 15 foot wall and small ledge over to the main triangles. Go up the front of the first, then move left, up the side of the last 2 triangles. There are several good rest ledges and great pro placement for the most part. It is pretty stable. I have been cleaning rocks that may be dangerous as I develop the area. The top zigzag cracks require good balance and a bit of nerve to place nuts over the drop after resting on the top triangle. I question if this part isn't more 5.10, it seems thin. Finish with a 15 foot run across the top rubble left a bit to the "duck head" rock, where I left slings to rap down.

Location

It is left of a big shaft, you can't miss triangles stacked on top of each other. This starts at a big, pink crystal dike, runs up right, front, and left of whole arete, thus the name.

Protection

There are NO BOLTS. It is a purely trad area. Place a sling aroung the "duck head" rock at top of "Suzy Triangles". There is one strong tree on the rock fin to rap off, and place a sling at top of pitch one on "Spice Drops" before the "pyramid". Bring whatever, complete it with a small and large set of nuts, 2 Black Diamond #1 cams, and a 0.5, 1, and 1.5 set of Wild Country Friends.
