DescriptionThe best bolted route at the Talc Mine. Climb the slab past a bolt to a diagonal crack (gear). Climb the diagonal crack for 10 feet until the second bolt can be reached via good holds. Follow the line of bolts past a vertical section with precarious climbing (crux) to easy ground. Scramble to the top, placing a couple pieces of gear on the way.
Protection6 bolts, gear, long slings. Top anchor has no rap hardware, can easily be reached from the top. Bring loads of cordalette, the rock has sharp edges near the lip.
Gear beta: Blue and yellow tcu size for the diagonal crack, larger camalots for the top (any two cams from .5 to #3 should work)
