BETA PHOTO: Fahrenheit 23 is the left hand bolted route.


From Huston's topo:
Boulder through the first three bolts (crux), shake out, and then continue up the wall above avoiding the chimney on your left. The grade is unconfirmed. Shares the final two bolts and chains with the previous route.


Left route on slab to the right of "Secret Agent Man".

Huston's topo calls this 12c?

I thought I remembered a comment or post calling it 13 as well somewhere on here. Maybe Schlick's comment under the main Qual Wall page? Anyone want to check it out later this summer when it cools down and we can come up with a consensus? This and a couple of the others that I need to get on too.

I think I was told it was 13 as well. Aaron tried it on day and it looked hard to the point that I didn't try.

Sorry, Huston does call it 12c, I changed the route info.

Trying to pull through the first three bolts felt impossible. No evidence of broken holds either. Damn!

Run-out at the point it joins the other route.

feels like 12c to me. did it in the humidity which sucked, but it was techy and reachy moves.

There appears to be a sequence both left (no bottom shared holds) AND right (shares bottom holds w/right 12a route) of the bottom 4 bolts = 2 sequence options...
This may account for the lack of grade clarity?

Nah, I think this route just sucks.

I have seen the right variation go but not the left variation. Left variation = razor crimps on less than ideal rock quality.

Jason did the left hand line in February and felt that it was more difficult than its neighbor Secret Agent Man. It would be quite an accomplishment to send this variation in summer with less than ideal friction. I have to wonder if those climbing this in summer and calling it 12b and 12c are not wandering onto the right side variation.
