Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Wandering route with a hollow flake. The crux is a slabby section right at the last bolt (near the top), initially rated 5.9 but consensus is 5.8.

When you reach the flake, save the 1.25" cam until you reach an obvious placement that doesn't sound hollow (not the initial obvious placement which is very hollow)!

I added a bolt in 2010 to protect the initial bulge (since the only other pro is a fixed pin that won't last forever).

Toproping the direct start is about 5.10a.

Location 

Right of Not All Who Wander. Starting up the knobby "tongue" of rock which is a 10' wide flake (tiny dihedrals on either side), climb over a bulge then break sharply right to reach a somewhat loose flake.

Protection 

4 bolts, 1 fixed pin, one 1.25" cam, optional thin cams for start. Two bolt anchor with sport lower-offs.
