To the first anchors (5.11a). Are you kidding? There are no holds after the lower anchors ;o) Great route.

OS to 1st anchor

Felt like 5.11c up to the first anchors. Very cool route.

Cool route to the first set of anchors...has anyone gone past that?

Very cool route up to the first anchors and that's as far as I went. I mistakenly thought I was on Back door to Paris and kept telling myself: "it's only a 10c, it's only a 10c, it's all in your head." Well worth the hike, small hold, small hold, small hold, tired, good shake; rinse and repeat.

one-move-wonder past first anchors, but still a great route

I think 11a is right on to the first set of chains. The holds just aren't chalked or ticked because its in a water streak

good route to the second anchors, be prepared for moss in the last two bolts of climbing, big holds there though, amazing view

1st pitch has new anchors and bolts.

Pretty heinous last two bolts on lichen and wet moss to a rope-dragging, sheath-trashing nightmare of an anchor. Great climbing up to the second-to-last bolt though, which is exactly where the anchor should be.
RRO said on December 19th, 2011
If your talking first set, then someone has taken the chain and links. If your talking second set, fix em...
dustonian said on December 19th, 2011
Second set. "Fixing" the anchor would mean replacing and moving down about 10 feet. I'll probably get to it at some point if no one objects. A lot of other fixin' to do elsewhere in the meantime.
RRO said on December 19th, 2011
Word. I just figured another anchor set was stolen.....what's taking so long, it's like your rebolting the load or something....
dustonian said on December 19th, 2011
first pitch bolts and anchors looked great, thanks!! 2nd pitch was pretty classic, several redhead-style 3/8" wedge bolts, with moss growing on the hangers and an anchor completely buried in mud, slime, and leaves. actually couldn't find it at first, had to dig!

Should we kiss or cuddle now, am I supposed to call you in the morning and do I have to update my Facebook ?

I prefer to be awakened with gentle fellatio.

yep, those anchors are still covered in the slime/mold/dirt, but an awesome route up to there! Make sure you have a 70 m to get down, or do a double rappel from the lower anchors. Awesome sequence to get past the first set of anchors
