Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details


This is really sort of a link-up variation that might entertain those who are looking for novel ascents in this heavily travelled section of the cliff. Based upon its chalk, it's been done before. The name may not be quite accurate, but it really goes over perhaps 15' of distinct terrain, so we'll just hybridize the names for now.

If you decide to lead this, start by clipping the 1st bolt of Toura Obscura. Then, back down and move up and left in the sort-of-right-facing fractured corner slightly left of the bolt line. Gain a finger crack on the right where you can get some gear. Use a hip scum to wriggle through the first bulge. Fiddle some more gear, and squirm into the pod-like spot. Continue up and left and finish with the last bit of Handle This Hard One.


This starts as for or just slightly left of Toura Obscura and finishes on Handle This Hard One.


A bolt, smaller gear #1 Camalot and down, a final protection bolt, and the two bolt anchor of Handle This Hard One.
