This is on a buttress closer to the road than the bulk of the routes. Follow the clearest trail from the road. As soon as you reach the rock face, cut left along the rock until you reach a downclimb to a ledge with several trees. Wits End starts on the ledge above the downclimb. Follow an obvious weakness/flaring crack more or less straight up to a big belay ledge with the chain anchors.


Protects well with small to medium nuts and mostly small SLCDs (Aliens). 1/2" S/S Rawl bolts with grade 43 colts shuts and grade 43 chain anchors.

COLD shuts obviously, not COLTS shuts. No firearms or malt liquor were used in the installation of the anchors.

If you give it a bomb, why bother establishing the route or posting it?

Just because it was rated a "Bomb" by the FA party doesn't mean everyone will hate it. I have rated some routes a "Bomb" myself in the past and a few Climber's said they enjoyed the routes with the "Bomb rating" regardless. However Braxton I understand your comment, Hell Climber's and FAer's are not all that normal in my opinion!
