Description

This is a wonderful new line that takes you a good distance from the ground. The position and view from the second pitch is great. I believe this will end up being a very popular route. If you're looking for an easier route to hone your multi-pitch skills this is a very good choice. Just stay safe out there.

Start below the first bolt and make a somewhat thoughtful move to get yourself situated on the route. A stick clip is not a bad idea as a slip here could be a tumble down a hill if you fell wrong. From here the climbing is enjoyable and well protected. Fun slab climbing that felt at times like an easier B-B-Buttress.

The second pitch starts with more fun slab climbing and leads to a really excellent flake. Look to your left and enjoy the view! Finish up a short steep crux on good holds. This pitch was a blast.

Two raps back to the ground.

Location

Tipping Point is located at the far right side of Main Cliff Right. As you approach from the parking lot turn right past Get a Grip and turn the corner and walk up the steps toward Orange Crush just a short ways. You're there.

Protection

Bolted anchors. You will need a good amount of draws for the first pitch as it was fairly long. I will edit this when I get an exact count for the bolts.

60M Rope required. The first pitch is a FULL 30 meters.

Re' Bolts: From Dan Kaye the following was received: Counted the bolts today - I believe its 12 bolts + a 2-bolt anchor for P1, and 7 bolts (the last of which is kinda just a directional) and a 2-bolt anchor for P2. (added by RHall, NH Admin. )
