A fun little route to do if you've got time after finishing Queen Vic. Pretty much sport, but I think I placed 1 small cam near the start.


On the south side of Queen Vic there are 2 bolted routes. This is the right most one. Well camoflauged, so hard to spot. The first bolt is up a ways.


Draws, 1 each to 0.75 Camalot.

Does any one know what the left sport route is called? I climbed it the other day because it was really cold/windy at the saddle and on queen vic. The route started with pulling a little bulge, a short chimeny followed by a pretty large runout section and finish with placing a few small cams to a bolted anchor. I thought it was in the 5.9 range with the crux being the chimney. 4 bolts with small pro, 80ft

Edit: Looks like we climbed the first pitch of Victoria's Secret. First pitch 5.9, second pitch is an OW 5.10 that joins up with the regular route.

I don't remember seeing any bolts other than the ones on the line 15 feet left of where that beta photo was taken. Although I did see a piton 20 feet up on this line. Then there are bolts to follow?

The first pitch is bolted. I bailed halfway up the second pitch due to unsafe rock quality. Tons of loose rock and blocks to the left of the crack. Climb at your own risk.
