Description

Climb over a couple of bulges to reach the roof and the start of a small, right-facing corner. Make a couple of fun moves getting established and moving out to a jug below the lip. Find the holds over the lip (even if you can't see them!). Pull up, and clip the anchors.

This route is still evolving, with several loose holds.

I enjoyed the movement in the corner and hope it all stays together, but be careful till it cleans up.

Location

The left side of the Graveyard features a short roof. This route climbs the roof via a short, right-facing corner/groove. Begin just a few feet left of The Reaper.

Watch out for cactus!

Protection

6 bolts to anchors.

Also, the anchors could use some chain. As currently equipped, there is a bit of rope abrasion when lowering. Feb 4, 2018

A fun little crux once you figure it out, but lowering (especially to clean) is a serious rope-killer. Unless the anchors get moved, it would be smart to lower each time on rappel and clean it on TR. This still might tear your rope up a bit :( Feb 14, 2018

Chains could work on the anchor. It was hard finding a good spot for the anchors, since there is so much fractured rock up there. That’s why they are where they are. I’ll go up there and try to fix the rope abrasion issue sometime soon. Feb 15, 2018

The last bolt on this climb is taking a beating. I wish I had my wrench today, but I did not. I was able to hand tighten the bolt, approximately 6/7 rotations...but without a wrench, I was obviously not able to finish the job. I doubt I would climb this again without first tightening that bolt. Tightening it will help, but it may need more attention. Mar 31, 2018

Thanks for bringing the wrench to the crag, James! The last bolt, and 3rd from the last bolt were tightened down. I don't think these are bad bolts, as they tightened down well without an issue. Apr 16, 2018

Aside from the rope abrasion after you send it and cleaning it on TR, it is a fantastic little boulder problem for those who do that sorta thing, lol. Hard for the grade, but I get it. :/ Worth the attempts. Jun 3, 2018
