Description

Marooned is a technical climb that follows a razor thin seam and inside corner. Brute strength won't help you much on this one. Having a good head above thin gear will help and some fancy foot work.

Marooned drys much faster than the 5.9 first pitch of bullethead east and links up perfectly with the second pitch of bullethead east. Combine Marooned with the last three pitches of bullethead east for a full value outing.  You start at the same belay as the 5.9 first pitch of bullethead east but you go up the the face past a bolt and then make some easy run out moves towards the crack. Climb the razor thin seam (crux) up the slabby face. Pull over the overlap past another bolt and a bit more easy runout until you reach the final inside corner.
35m pitch
2 bolts, SR to .5' (rps protect the crux well).
Double .5' is also nice to have.

Enjoy!

Location

Bullethead central. Same belay start as the 5.9 pitch for bullethead east. 

Protection

2 bolts, SR to .5' (rps protect the crux well).
Double .5' is also nice to have.

This is a way better start to the bullethead east route. Skip the mediocre 5.9, link this as the first pitch and you will have a pretty great day. As the description says, bring small gear.. rp’s if you have them, but small nuts can work for the thin seam crux section. If you like thin balance climbing then this is the pitch for you.
