Comments: A couple of things to settle here.
The climb just left of Weak Nuts is Numb Nuts
The next climb to the left is Rhumb Line with a lonely bolt about 30 ft off the ground climb past that for about 15 ft to another bolt at a stance a bit in the black moss to the right(both just replaced 7-24-14)then run it out straight up to a crack just left of weak nuts(gear) and to the rappel anchor(tree) on weak nuts.There is no two bolt anchor for this climb.
Two ropes to rappel.
The next line to the left is Ve... more >>

Comments: Robert,
just to clarify,the line of Lost Arch is a totally independent line from Found Arch.
Found Arch is the line just right of Groov-in with the first two bolts fairly close together protecting the crux moves before stepping left across the moss streak to the third bolt.(also,if the first bolt seems like a stretch,there is a good right foot at the start of the overlap(look carefully before going too high) that is key to stand up and make the clip from.)

Lost Arch starts to the right at a low... more >>

Comments: Sorry you missed it Rob.
I did put some orange tape on some of the trees last year to make it easier to follow.
If I get some time soon I will head up and see what it looks like.
Should be less than 10 minutes from the tracks to the base.
I'll bet the bugs are pretty bad right now though...

Comments: only one pin John.
It is a bugaboo I think at least halfway up and off to the right before you step left to the final rails and bolt near the top.
On another note,a friend scrubbed Wack-a-mole/Sticks last year and we just replaced the bolt on 5-13-14.
This may see another accent this year!
A couple of people are "interested".
John do you know if that moderate short crack on the very left end of the slab has been done?Just curious as I am giving it a good cleaning.It will be a nice little 5.5? or... more >>

  • * Gear beta spoiler***
There is a small cam(micro) in the seam partway into the start of the first real friction moves.A little heady for sure.
When Chris and I cleaned this up a few years back we also noticed an old 1/4 inch hole down low on the route which would protect those first moves from groundfall.
Anybody know the history behind that??
Original,added later and removed??

Comments: I would have to agree about that pillar not being a 3.
I think the only reason it gets that is how short it is.
That is the steepest grade 3 pillar I have ever done ;)
Great route for sure

Comments: I think you were on Bore Tide.
Lost in the sun starts WAY down and right of where you were at the next big open slab a few hundred feet right.

Comments: I did this route yesterday 11-12-12.
Fun little adventure.

To echo what Jeremy said:
I would bring a small rack to #1 bd (we only used up to a .75).You will need two ropes to get off(4 double rope raps).
I am not sure but would almost bet that 50 meter ropes will NOT get you to the belays (maybe the first?).All pitches seem to be around 180 ft or so.

I did this route again yesterday 6-21-14. You will need 60 meter ropes for all pitches.
