  • Description 

    Start at a layback flake that ends at a devious move at a bolt. Move up past another bolt and into a broken crack system. Continue up and eventually traversing left to the fixed nut anchor that is shared with Horseshoes and hand grenades.


    It's located on the Apricot buttress descent gully to the right of horseshoes and hand grenades about 50'. Either descend the gully or rappel in 45 meters from some newly installed glue in bolts at the top of apricot buttress. You can make the rappel off the bolts to the fixed nut anchor and then to the ground with a single 60 meter rope.


    Triple rack up to 6's to include pins, beaks, bashies, and brassies.
