How to turn short routes into a longer route, the ...


Climb the steep arête 20 feet left of Glory Hole. This has long moves to good holds with the crux being just past the last bolt.

The bolt placement is a little spicy, be careful going from bolt 1 to 2. Blow the clip and you may deck.


This is 20 feet left of Glory Hole.


4 bolts, this shares the anchor with routes to the right. It has been recently updated with ASCA hardware.

Climbing to the fourth bolt was fun, but the guidebook I was using said that there were 5 bolts. So after clipping the 4th, I was trying to climb directly above thinking there was going to be a 5th ha ha. Now I know that there are only 4 bolts. In my misguided confusion, I took one short fall after the fourth. Then I realized my error. I just needed to climb up and right to the anchors. Sometimes you just need to follow the path of least resistance and all the obvious chalky holds, ha! Sometimes I'm just an idiot. If you took a fall before clipping the anchors, it would be a grand, swinging, heart throbbing whipper onto the fourth bolt but safe enough with a good belay, I guess.
