Amy Wilkins on, Wall Flower. 5.9


A nice route starting out in a short crack, followed by face climbing up to a gentle bulge. Probably the most densely bolted route on the warmup wall.

I just made up the name and don't know anything about the FA. This route is relatively new, and does not appear in any guidebook I'm aware of. The only online reference to it I can find is here (2012):


Between "Welcome to the gorge" and "Clip Jr." Starts on a short section of crack.


9 bolts to hook anchor.

Couldn't find any info on this, but it was a fun climb. If anyone knows more let me know...

its a Kelly Cordner route; goes at 5.9 and is well protected. there is a 20' or so section of 3rd class in the middle between headwalls that is unprotected (and unnecessary to have bolts.) great climbing on clean rock put up 2 years ago.

Was climbing over at the Social Platform today and couldn't help but notice the pair of three foot long chains at the anchor on this route. The other 20 anchors are all very discrete. What's the deal with the steel? Is this some new gaudy ethic?

Never mind. I'm a dinosaur. Crag ethics are dead. It's a new era. More glistening steel please! Peace out.
