Description Suggest change

This is most likely the original start to the Old Original. It is basically a direct start which bypasses the more commonly climbed first two pitches of Old Original.

Climb past two bolts in a water streak to join Old Original at the end of it's second pitch.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: since 2018 a pair of condors has been trying to nest on the south end of Machete Ridge. When this happens all routes to the right(west) of Corona and extending west and south and around to The Hideout on the south face which includes Old Original are closed. More information is located here:


Location Suggest change

Start about 80 feet right (north) of the more commonly climbed start of Old Original at the base of an obvious water streak.

Protection Suggest change

Two protection bolts to a two-bolt anchor that is not rigged for rappel. If continuing on Old Original bring the gear recommended for that climb.
