Route runs straight up this big bulge.

Partially Closed.

Description 

Silver Streak is thin, very thin, in fact holds have probably broken off of it as the nature of the dells goes. 4 bolts to the top, thin pumpy and powerful. The hardest line in the high rappel dells as of now.

Location 

Silver Streak is found behind the main climbing walls of The High Rappel Dells. On the approach up to the climbing area if you stay in the gully system you will pass a 100 foot pinnacle on your left that holds some 5.10-5.11 routes. Continue on and you will reach a grassy open area, flat ground with a stunning 50 foot thin face on your right. This is Silver Streak

Protection 

4 bolts to single bolt to lower or walk off. For some reason the anchor has been pulled on this route, and not replaced.

After putting a V10 boulderer on the crux of this route, and having him not find a way to do this...Im pretty sure the crux holds have broken off...its a bit obvious, I alone broke three good holds while projecting this.

Seems like this is a new open project with the broken holds...Kevin maybe you can chime in with how people originally sent this line?

Leo Henson did the first ascent in the 80's. The route is a little different down low however the top section (crux) is relatively the same. It really gets hard after the horizontal. Sterling Murray led it when he was 15 so Leo down rated it to 12d. Could be harder now though.

Thanks for the history input Kevin! Just based on other routes in the area, and other routes I've done else where I'd definitely say its harder than 12+. Also once you reach the horizontal is where it lighten ups to the easiest moves on the climb. Just before the horizontal though is where we were finding the true crux to be. Multiple obvious holds have ripped off from the first bolt to the top. Lets get someone super strong to send this thing and get a newer consensus!
