Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

Keep to the left in the POS Dihedral, and climb to the diving board with the wedged old white tat. Surmount the diving board, and a nice hand crack will take you to the first bolt. Climb onto the block above and follow the bolts up the scoop. Climb up right onto another large block and clip two more bolts to reach the offwidth.

Location

Ascending Order is a continuation to the rim of one of the old POS Dihedral variations. Located left of Polar Sandals, it climbs the left wall of the dihedral via a nice hand crack and finishes in the offwidth high above.

Protection

The gear goes pretty much in ascending order: thinner placements down low to a #1 and a #3 Camalot for the hand crack. Draws for six bolts then a #2 Camalot gets you started into the wide. A few #4s and a #5 Camalot protect the offwidth. Bolted anchors with chains greet you at the top.

This route is fun, but there is lots of not so good rock just prior to the offwidth. I broke off several holds which I thought might be good for the hands. The route is worth doing if you have done the other ones in the same area. Mar 26, 2015
