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!
DescriptionStart as for The Desert, straight up into a deep pod below the roof. Cruise up this on jugs with pro in the back (be sure to extend). At the roof, step right and make a strenuous pull on jugs and jams. Once established on the face above, follow the easy crack to where it joins a big blunt flake on the left. Protect well here because, though it's easy, it's a run-out to the anchor.
This route would really benefit from having a new anchor placed at the top of the crack, which would alleviate the run-out and rope drag if top-roping, and could serve to open up several other lines to the right.
