Graeme Plant rebolting Iliac.

Description 

The first bolt is fairly high up and hard to spot from the ground, but it is easy climbing on highly featured rock to clip it. Note that the third bolt is way left and hard to see. There is a crack near the pine tree that accepts small cams to 1” and there you can clearly see the bolt at a 5.9 bulge and the crux of the climb. If you have a 70 meter rope you can continue past the massive ledge and up smooth 5.7 face climbing past two bolts to the ring anchors shared with Under My Skin. It takes two ropes to rap from here, or continue on fun, easy climbing (but no protection) to the uppermost anchor. Or if you want to skip the last bit up the wall, you can climb left up the ledge-crack to the Naptime ring anchors.

Location 

The first bolt is lined up far below a tiny pine tree on the face.

On the topo image found under "Nap Wall Area", this is climb number 8.

Protection 

Mainly bolts, but a small/medium cam needed for one placement. Ring anchors at top.
