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!
DescriptionToo often ignored, this moderate line takes you through some consistently engaging climbing over quality rock with thought-provoking gear placements. Start up the big chunks just left of the last bolt line to a stance, then bust it up the slight overhang (crux) to an awkward crouching stance below the roof. Step out right into a slightly dirty crack with lots of jugs into an airy position. Continue up the slab, trending left along diagonals below another roof. At a weakness in these overhangs, go straight up, then step out right and continue traversing to the Sky Ladder anchor. It is very difficult to retrieve the gear on lower or rappel, a second climber should follow and clean the route.
