Description

SENIOR PROJECT 5.5 *** 105’ F/M (7b)
Climbs directly up from the belay anchor on the lower ledge to pull through the first small roof on good holds and then traverse left under the upper overhang to share the top chain anchors with “Senior Moment”. There are several horizontal gear placements possible with a wide range of cams (#0 to 3) between the widely spaced bolts.The rock is mostly excellent on this fun (if bold feeling for the grade) route with an interesting and exposed crux near the top. Possible to lower with 60m rope.

Location

At the left end of the Upper SE Face - shares the bottom and top anchors with "Senior Moment"

Protection

fixed - 7 bolts, chains at the top. There are several horizontal gear placements possible with a wide range of cams (#0 to 3) between the widely spaced bolts. Possible to lower with 60m rope.

A nice if mild double entendre - the creation of this route was by a local high schooler for her senior project, it also is a challenge for a somewhat older fart… Nov 4, 2016

Nice to hear that a senior can get some school credit for route-work.

And indeed, someday I will be projecting routes like this. Nov 5, 2016

Yeah, it was an unusual request - "teach me how to create a bolted route". Made me realize 40 years of experience are hard to distill into a few lessons. We spent a few days a couple of years ago getting the two routes scouted, marked and cleaned but she never was able to do the actual bolting - other than for the top anchors (lack of funds). Was nice to get back and finally finish them. Nov 5, 2016
