Access Issue: Bolt Failures - Donations Help Details
Accelerated corrosion that targets stainless steel bolts (SCC) has caused multiple failures, including both anchor bolts on a route that a climber was being lowered off of. Please read the BOLTS note on the main page. You can also help the cause by visiting the Bivy during your stay and giving QX some reds, whites, or if youre feeling generous, some BLUES!
Description [Suggest Change]
Find the vegetated weakness on the north-facing wall. Scramble up the right side of this to a bushy ledge. Pull a few easy moves over questionable rock to a stance below an overhang. Plug a cam in the slot then crux it over this. At the stance above, find small pro then step left and pull jugs into the groove. Amazing features, with one flexing flake, leads up a slight but juggy overhang to a really cool perch next to some detached but solid chunks. Scramble up a bit further to set a gear anchor, then lower yourself down so you can belay your second while you watch them climb. Descend by walking left (east) to the rappel anchors on Long Arete.
