BETA PHOTO: Beta photo showing 1. Wild Women of the Planet Pl...

Description 

A 5.9 face climb protected by four bolts for the first part. The crux is the first part of the climb. After the fourth bolt it gets easier. Carry pro for the last part which is 5.7. For a more interesting variation, go right after the fourth bolt and climb Grip Master.

Location 

Route 1 in the photos. The most obvious landmark is the giant boulder on the slope below.

Protection 

Four bolts protect the first part. Carry pro to two inches for the second.

The fixed pin is gone, but you can place a small nut, or a micro cam in the small crack just above where the fixed pin was located (according to Anderson's guide book.) There is still chains above the old fixed pin location to lower off.

no fixed pin, but solid nut placement in its place. Fun route.
