This is a short, fun, sport climb.


To be filled in.


Bolts, an optional small C3, and it uses the anchor of the neighboring route.

Short, fun, sporty climbing. Bring a small C3 for the last bit to ease the small runout at the end-ish.

This pitch could really use its own anchor at the slab where Marcus added a bolt for the variation. Such a drag to have to TR the route to clean it.... It's a SPORT CLIMB!!!!!!

I totally agree. I would climb the route a lot more if it had its own anchors. The climbing is great, but the 5.7 traverse is lame.

Agreed on the above anchor thoughts. Great route though.

I'm really wanting to put the anchor in, because I'm tired of having to climb the route twice. If you have an opinion, let me know. Even the Watch Crystal Crack has a bolted anchor and that is an E. Animas traditional trade route.

Another vote for the anchor.

Thanks for the anchor.

I placed a #0.4 Camalot and a red Alien at the top section and felt good to have those pieces.
