Description

This route takes an arching chossy line up the namesake TNT wall.  

  • First pitch is pretty good standard fare, albeit not that good overall, but way better than the stuff lurking above.
  • Second pitch arches and moves right through some suspect rock and botanical wonders.  Long slings will help.
  • Third pitch follows some quasi chossy adventure climbing up and left to an anchor.   This is the pitch with the ghost rope hanging off to the right.
  • Fourth pitch continues up the shoulder on suspect rock.
  • Fifth pitch: don’t know as we did not do it.

Rap straight down with a 70m hitting the anchors of Bogus Journey or Ruta 66 to the ground

Location

Starts just right of where the vegetation thins on the very left side of the TNT wall. There is a nameplate for Ruta 66 to the right about 25 feet.

Pitch 1: 10 bolts to anchor, 5.9
Pitch 2: 12 bolts to anchor, 5.10a

Linking of p 1& 2 from either TNT or Ruta 66 with 70m. Come prepared mentally and with gear for rope drag, I skipped bolts and placed long runners on no less than 7 bolt along with back cleaning. Towards the top of p2, just as you bust nearly dead right around a around a rooflet, be prepared to strip that runner. The route is fun enough but not an uber classic. First pitch has some nifty calcite in some pockets. Feb 26, 2019

Pitch 1 is two stars... the rest is maybe 1/2 a star. Feb 27, 2019
