Into the Spotlight

5.8 PG13, Sport, 180 ft (55 m), 2 pitches,  Avg: 3 from 1 vote
FA: unknown
California > High Desert > Antelope Valley… > Devil's Punchbowl > S Area > Behind the Scenes

Description

Walking up the gully with the wall on the left it's the second route. There's a crux between the second and third bolts on the first pitch and one after the third bolt on the second pitch.

In need of repair. Old rusty bolts and 3 bolted rusty anchor. This route is very loose because it never gets climbed. It's a decent two pitch route with amazing views but needs some TLC and some traffic.

Location

Second route from the left end of Behind The Scenes Wall. Just to the right of the Unknown 5.9. Starts right before the first small corner from the left as you enter the gully. Walk up a right facing ramp about a 35 degree angle right below first bolt. Descent: two raps on a single rope.

Protection

Pitch one: 4 bolts to the first anchor. Anchor is 3 bolts. Pitch two: 6 bolts to a 2 bolted anchor.
