Description

80m rope required to lower the whole way!! Has "mid-point" lowering chains to the right, in between routes that you can easily be lowered or rapped to. TIE A KNOT IN THE END OF YOUR ROPE if you will be belayed to the mid chains, and have belayer untie end if you will be pulling the rope.
The bottom 1/3 consists of mostly long fun moves on good grips while grazing past less than appealing landscape. Pockets lined with crystal and hidden holes abound. A good rest is found easily before trending right, and into the better looking landscape with more hidden holes and pockets. The thin crux awaits way up on the vertical headwall, and spits you into a shallow alcove, under a big rotted crystal area. Now you get to take in the reality of the altitude gained before doing a two bolt long boulder that renders the chains.

Location

When you walk up the hill towards the cave, you can see the start almost straight ahead, maybe slightly to the left.

Protection

17- 1/2"x7" bolts w/fixed draws and chain anchor/belay

"Maybe someday someone will put a route here" There were about four bolts on the bottom and a set of chains about halfway up the cliff. The route was obviously abandoned, and potentially because of the choss on the bottom?. Not to mention some of those bolts were placed in unsafe rock. But I have spent a lot of time cleaning up the bottom and exposed some good rock. I also made the route go all the way to the top of the cliff and most of the rock past half-way is really good. As a confidence booster for climbers, I have installed 7"long bolts that are 1/2" thick. All hardware is stainless. Totally worth it. Aug 22, 2017

Installed chains about halfway up, to the right, before the other route, that are easily accessed by belay or rap. WATCH END OF ROPE Sep 19, 2017
