Description

Scamper up the really slopey, chossy, and root-filled top of the mineshaft entrance without knocking out your belayer with a large rock (crux). Continue with crimpy climbing with a couple of good shake-outs to a long reach just before the chains. I've watched many heart-breaking falls at this final move.

Location

Begin left of Rapid Fire starting on the ledge above the mineshaft entrance.

Protection

5 bolts and a two bolt anchor. You may want to pre-clip the first bolt.

[Hide Comment] This route is great! Stickclip the first bolt, and have your belayer stand far out away from the junk you can send down when putting your shoes on. Aug 10, 2020
