Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description [Suggest Change]

This is a 2 bolt direct start to "Recession Arete", joining the route at the 2nd bolt. Stick clip the 1st bolt. Vertical face & rounded arete moves lead up the prow with the crux at the 2nd bolt. Reach good holds, & make 3rd clip (2nd bolt on Recession Arete). Continue up "Recession Arete. The second crux of the climb is the crux of "Recession Arete", which is technical & slippery slab climbing.

This direct start was bolted on January 2, 2016, prior to the start of new JCOS bolting regulations. Thanks to Kirk Miller & Troy Tablock for their help.

Location [Suggest Change]

Start just right of "Depression" on flat, grassy ground. The start to "Recession Arete" is uphill right 12-15 feet off a block.

Protection [Suggest Change]

7 bolts / 2 Fixe rings.

Maybe it was the warmer temps, but I found the crux near the 2nd bolt to be quite hard for 12a. Great climbing nonetheless. Dec 3, 2017
I'm glad you liked the route. Definitely hard moves. Very warm temps this weekend. Perhaps it was okay in the afternoon shade on the route if the rock had cooled down. I usually climb at North Table on a sunny 40-55 degrees fahrenheit day. I find Table basalt is always a rude wake up call after climbing on granite & sandstone for the most year. Dec 3, 2017
