Description Suggest change

The cat is out of the bag on this one. It seems like a little more information will be helpful. My notes say 5.10, but my recollection is a boatload of 5.8 and 5.9 face. 90+ % of the bolts are large buttonheads currently in good condition.

Pitch 1. 5.10. Begin by an old ring pin, climb past a bush on to a high quality rock face, 170 feet, 15 bolts, 1 pin, 2 bolt anchor.

Pitch 2. 5.10. Climb a steep face, 150 feet,. 11 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Pitch 3. 5.10-. Climb up to the large dihedral, and then left across the face to a tiny stance near the arete, 150 feet, 8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Pitch 4. 5.8 A0. Face climb near an amazing arete to a step about 90 feet up, 8 bolts, and an anchor is a large slung boulder at the top. Consider descending from this point. The last 100 feet. of low 5th Class climbing is littered with debris including football-size rocks that could be dislodged by your rope.

From the top, you can descend Minoan Maze with double ropes.      

Location Suggest change

This begins immediately to the left of the large gully that separates Acid Rock and Baby Helen's Dome at the lowest point of the north buttress of Acid Rock.   

Protection Suggest change

16 quickdraws and something for the anchors.
