Description

Lots of thoughtful moves sustained in difficulty.

Up the ridge. When it seems to disappear, look up to find where it re-appears. Perhaps a bit of weaving, climbing some on left or right side of the crest of the ridge. Finish at the 2-bolt anchor shared with the route just left of this one.

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Location

A bit more than half-way up the dirt/rock slope that rises left-to-right from the Trail Slab up to the flat ledge of the Central section -- at the base of a vague ridge.

Protection

2-bolt anchor at top. For details about this anchor, see under Protection for the route Shelves - Wander Right.

Leading: 5 bolts as of 2018.
. . . (bolts + hangers are 3/8-inch Stainless steel).

There is a significant "run-out" section between two bolts in the middle where the climbing is easier.

note: The two anchor bolts are vertically offset, so cannot just connect two quickdraws for lower-off or top-rope as many American sport climbers are accustomed. Consider bringing a sling or climbing accessory cord with one or two carabiners or quick-links.

In case anchor hardware is damaged or missing or otherwise inadequate, recommend to carry a few feet of 8mm climbing accessory cord and at least one quick-link.

Top-Roping: Use the 2-bolt anchor for the route "Wander Right" -- Reaching this from above requires down-climbing steep-ish rock + dirt with lots of loose rock, so better to reach it by Leading this route.

For ideas about how to get access to set up top anchor, see Description page for this Lewis sector.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
