Location: Nevada : The Wild Granites

Comments: Paul Firestone and I did the 5.9 route above the Apron short of the summit. It's titled 'The Book of Acts'. We worked it ground up back in 93/94.

The Granites were written on bt Allison Osius in either Rock and Ice or Climbing.

There's water if you can find it, and the mo see'ums bite like Hell.

Comments: In my less than humble opinion...this route's a solid 5.6. I've soloed it at least 3 times and taught many a new leader on this route. The horizontal dike runout alone ( while using the hole in the flake as natural pro) confirms the original ratings.

That's my .02 worth.

Comments: I did this route back in 89. Is that dicey flake past the 2nd (?) bolt still there? I remember tossing a TCU behind it and just praying the whole thing didn't fall off when I mantled on it :). It's nice to see that the bolts have been changed out. Great lead, great route.
