Sierra top roping 7-10 Split


So named because it wasn't quite a strike. Follow bolts on a blocky arete to a stemming dihedral. Gear for the last 1/3 of the route after leaving the dihedral. Will be a nice moderate once it gets more traffic and cleans up.


On the right side/below the huge Gargoyle roof. Starts off a large boulder adjacent to the wall.


8 bolts, gear to 3", rap anchors. Bring a #5 to protect the last 10' to the anchors, or run it out on easy ground.

Can you try to get a picture on this one soon, if you could please? Looked for it last time and couldn't find the first bolt.

Just put this route up on Sunday 03/23. Wonder what route you're thinking of? Maybe Vegan Tundra? 7-10 Split is super easy to find, it's just around the corner and left of Back Crack.

I guess what I should've said is "looked for a bolt line in this area and couldn't find one"

if i'm envisioning correctly what's written in the description, then i think you bolted what I had been eyeing at my last visit.

can't wait to check this out.

Great route, very enjoyable. The name makes sense for a multitude of reasons, especially as you're doing the splits in the dihedral. As for gear, (stop reading if you don't want to hear) I'd say the #5 is really important to have, at least at the very start of the large crack. Other than that, I placed a .5 and a nest of a few small nuts. I'd be curious what others use.
