P1: Start up a series of cleaned ledges 15’ right of Mighty Quinn to a flake with gear. Climb past four bolts making interesting moves with good rests. Finish up through some blueberries to a tree anchor. 65’ 5.10a
P2: Continue straight up from the tree anchor on slabs and short headwalls placing gear when possible. A bolt anchor awaits on top. 70’ 5.8 PG


Look for four bolts up the wall


Standard rack, bolts

Amazing route! First pitch is entirely safe with just the four bolts and a small cam/medium stopper at the start, and I linked it with the second pitch, which felt like maybe 5.7 with just two slung trees.

Only did pitch 1 - Really fun moves! The cruxes are protected extremely well by bolts, and the easier runouts can be protected very well with gear. Honestly, it seemed like it would be a G trad climb without the bolts, and next time I plan to do it that way.

I second the opinion that this would def go all trad...doin it that way next time...

most of the routes at longstack can go on all gear! i placed the bolts because the rock is grainy inside those cracks. i have ripped gear and seen others blow pieces falling on the harder climbs there and bolts are later added... the flake by the last bolt is very hollow and a fall onto gear in it could result in bad things.
I 100% agree that this could be a trad line tho, let me know how it goes!

The bolts were placed in feb, hence the name, and the cracks were filled with ice!
