R.R. on Ghouls...



This is the second route from the left. Climb the steep face up to a horizontal crack. Hand jam right, then move up to clip a lower-off anchor. The gyrations to clip the anchor are all part of the fun.


4 bolts to a 2-bolt lower-off anchor

Reaching the anchor from the crack was the key to success - solid, yet not solid all at the same time.

Originally there was a big jug facilitating the clip to the lower-off anchor....but it subsequently has broken off, so the clip is somewhat more difficult, but still do-able.

When did bolts near features that take good gear become OK at Josh?

Given the funky moves right, why not just just continue to the top? I'll admit I didn't continue all the way, but I was able to jam to a level higher than that anchor.
