Description

Well..rapping this is "easy 5th" (I guess, technically raps are 6th class) but to climb UP the route (Suzy Q) is about 5.8.

This line Raps the Suzy Q route from a double bolt anchor at the top of the cliff. [see also the Photo "Middle Section of Sugarloaf" posted on the 'home page' for Middle Sugarloaf] I believe two 60m ropes will make it but have never done it that way, I've always used a single 70m and stopped at the mid-station (2 bolts, no rap-station gear) If using the single-rope it must be a 70m for the 2nd rap.

Expect to need to leave a sling & biner(s) on the bolts so as to extend the rap for easy pulling of the ropes.

Sometimes climbers leave a rope "fixed" for single strand raps to return to the base after they finished their climb; however, with more top-and-mid-cliff anchors/rap stations appearing this is less common.

Location

See photo and instruction printed on photo.

Protection

Gear to equalize the dbl bolt anchor at the top, and the mid-station if using a single 70m.
