This is the leftmost (downhill-most) bolted route on the Balcony Wall and is located at the margin of this rock-panel, just adjacent to the Altar, the formation that holds Tabula Rasa.

Step off the medium boulder (or don't), and follow three bolts before trending right and up again to bolted anchors with rings.

Getting established onto the route as well as doing the few-move traverse to the right are the tricky sections.

It has mostly solid rock.


Find The Altar (i.e., the slab with Tabula Rasa on's hard to miss), which is about halfway down the hill on the right side in the Vestibule's main corridor. The route starts just to the right and uphill of this formation.


6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with rap rings.

Any additional information on this route would be appreciated. It was not in the Gillett guide nor MP. The bolts look moderately new. Let me know, and we can get this entry updated with the appropriate information.
