Fun on the quartzite....


This good route is the mirror image of Teardrops. It has a similar airy feel. From Gangsta Ledge, climb up and right starting on Father Roy, hand-traversing at the pod, and finishing the line of bolts up the right arete.

I did not want to compromise Father Roy, so you will probably want to bring a couple pieces of gear (#1 and 2 Camalot) or a stick-clip. The traverse will get the blood flowing for the bouldery crux that involves big pull to a crimp at the second bolt. Keep it together for a few more moves and finish up the easy, kind of runout slab to the anchors.


#1 and/or #2 Camalot (doesn't hurt to have both) for the Father Roy portion of the route. Then 3 protection bolts + two bolts for anchors.

Every bit as good as the other two, in my obviously biased opinion.

CW,..obviously, as with many subjective assessments there can be tinges of bias, in this case, another subjective nod for the above comparison.
