Kreighton Bieger feeling the acid.


This the the far left climb on the face to the left of the California Ethics Pinnacle. Excellent moves with a mono pocket hold as the crux. A little tricky moving to the bolts as well.


4 bolts to anchor.

I did this as a "Warm-up" and I remember hollering back down "I can't believe I'm pulling mono's on a 10!" Fun route but a little height-dependent.

Good route except for the [weird] clips

Nice route but the last move to the anchor felt harder for me.

Gear Alert
The right cold shut at the anchor is a great example of why you don't TR directly off anchors. Ropes have worn at least half-way through, and it WILL fail soon! I will replace with a new hanger next time I'm on the route. But, if that doesn't happen any time warned.

Why do you say that this is [due] to toproping? Lowering off after leading is the likely culprit. For future equippers, steel rings are the only way to go.

I don't know...given that I have seen large parties TR'ing off of the anchors, I would suspect that this might have a greater impact. However, it does seem to be a majority who don't seem to see a problem with lowering off of the anchors.

Cool little route with only a few harder moves at the top.

Anchors replaced 4/23/16 with PPCA provided stainless steel bolts and double ring anchors. Big thanks to the PPCA for organizing this weekend!
