Chris Graham working through the first crux on Thi...


Difficult and thought provoking moves past the first and second bolt lead to a steep and unrelenting slab protected by two bolts and gear at the midway-point.

Pitch 1: Climb past three bolts to a vertical crack/pocket (gear up to .75) midway up the slab. Continue straight up the slab on thin but fun chips and smears to a bolt. The route continues on to a nice balcony where you can get a well deserved shake before the final moves past the last bolt to a two bolt anchor (60’)


This is the second bolted route on the right side of Attitash crag located on a small 100’ face. Look for an obvious chimney / shallow corner with a right angling rail at roughly 15’ (bolt). The shallow chimney and leaning oak tree marks the start of the route. Rap the route with one 60M rope.


#1 & #.75 Camelot. 5 bolts total to a two bolt anchor.

Is this on the Atta-Scrap Wall?

No, this not on the Attascrap wall. This on a wall that is still part of the main cliff band but located far to the right. You have to follow a little bit of a catwalk that has had some older ropes set up on it to get there.

Thanks. So, right of Lost Boys? We need an over view topo drawing or photo of the crags

Yes Mark, Jim is right. This is all the way to the route to the right of Lost Boys.

It helps to bring a #1 BD Camalot and you can slot it in a nice horizontal (a bit shallow) prior to clipping the first bolt. The first crux is after the second bolt and the other is as you make your way up the steep face. Helpful to bring a #.05 and or #.75 to help protect the upper face. They are bomber placements! Have fun!

This is a really nice route with some thought-provoking climbing. Bolts are exactly where they need to be. I did think that 5.10+ would be a little more fair, but I also noticed from the photo posted that I did the crux with different beta that might take a little sting out of the grade. Either way, its very fun.
