Description

Revolver is another worthwhile multi-pitch route on the northern slab of 3 O'Clock Rock. Although overshadowed by it's neighbors, it has quality slab climbing and would be a popular classic at many other crags. Its 5 independent pitches are normally accessed by traversing leftward from Silent Running adding up to a 7 pitch outing.

Revolver's popularity is limited by two issues: It is the last climb on the face to dry out, and rockfall from above the route has damaged some bolts. Thankfully, rockfall occurred in the wet season when no climbers or hikers were present.

Details on each pitch are provided in the posted topo and the excellent guidebook Weekend Rock by David Whitelaw. If you take a copy of the topo, you should have no problem staying on route, with bolts to guide you.

Location

The route is located left of Silent Running, as shown in the topo. Looking straight up from the base of Silent Running, note a distinctive carrot-shaped pillar about 500' up where the wall steepens. Silent Running veers right of this feature, while Revolver crosses the shallow drainage and finishes to the left of the carrot.

Protection

Draws (8-10) plus a small rack of cams to 2". All belays and rappels are bolted for double rope rappels (50 m minimum). Most if not all old bolts were replaced, though some have been damaged by rock fall. Please post any updates on bolt conditions!
