Starts left of the direct start on Grips of Wrath -- up to a large flake that will take gear. This wandering route follows the holds and available gear placements, first to the left, then way out to the right and finally back up left to the chains. Skip clipping the shuts to experience the route like the FA party did, but beware -- there are some major runouts which, combined with the wandering nature of the route could lead to a major whipper, or even a groundfall. See the description for Grips of Wrath for some history.


Bolts and gear (this is not a clip-up!)

If you try to do the this route the way it was done before it was bolted over you will need courage, good gear placing skills, and route finding ability. Since routes are rarely put up in this fashion any more it is a shame to have lost one.

is it completely bolted over now or is it still gear + bolts?

This is truly a great route. Ditto Eric's comment above.
