Partially Closed.


This route follows a line of bolts on the right side of Time Zone Wall. Begin in a right-facing corner. Near the top it is possible to move left of the bolts for an easier variation.


The route starts left of a 5.8 seam.


Four bolts? Some gear can be had in places to supplement the bolts. Fixed anchor at the top.

The four bolts protect the route well. The first bolt looks high, but you can get to it easily on the right. I'm 5'5" and every clip was a bit reachy from the stances I got.

Even wandering a wee bit to the easier climbing, it feels true to 5.9. Climbing directly over the bolts would put it at 9+/10a, in my opinion. (I did the former on lead and the latter on TR)

Very fun climbing. Passing the first bolt is the crux but it's no slouch if you stay rift until the end

I'm with Bracken, I stuck with the direct route up the bolts, much harder than a 5.9, was definately thinking 10/10a range.
