The best pitch at the Boneyard by far.

The climbing is fun, sustained, steep and airy.

Can be done as one pitch with a 70 meter rope. You can then lower far enough down the slabby pitch to easily down climb, or stop at the first anchor, then pull the rope and rap.


Starts up the right hand side of the low angle slabs. 3 bolts on easy climbing to first anchors.
Old tat on the first set of anchors has been replaced with quick links and beaners.

Kind of chossy.

Lots of air under your feet, nice route. Belay bolts look a little old. 10d

Some pretty large rocks came down off the top pitch, to the left of the bolt line today. Almost decked a few people. If you're going to climb this, please consider bringing enough helmets for everyone in the group.

Also, the left anchor was a bit loose. I would have tightened it, but didn't have a wrench and it was about to rain.

Helmets mandatory! Pulled off multiple fist sized holds in the bolt line. Foot holds were crumbling as I went up and a great deal of the rock was visibly loose or suspiciously hollow. Rock quality detracted from the route.

Felt and looked like critical holds had pulled halfway up the '2nd' pitch. Lots of the brown varnish that makes up the majority of crimps was visibly crumbled away. Major jump in grade difficulty about 4 bolts past the first anchors.
