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!
Climb a brief, strenuous finger to hand crack up to the pod. Plug small gear in the overhang, duck into the hole for a rest, then pull out from the roof (don't get your helmet stuck!). A long reach helps to get the good jams/jugs here. Pull hard through this to establish yourself on the face then scramble up to a stance. Two flake options present themselves: one to the left, which is a jug haul to an easy rightward traverse, or a thinner flake straight up to the anchor ledge.
On the South Claw of First Cave. North-facing wall. The crack with a big hole in the middle, just left of the roof.
