Description 

One of the original "old routes" with an unknown name, Bermuda Triangles used to go all the way to the top of the wall over two small triangle-like blocks. Those blocks and a large section of the upper corner gave way to gravity last fall (see orange rock scar) and with the missing triangles came a route name. Recently restored with two bolts so it again goes to the top of the wall.

Head up through the small notch at the base past one bolt onto the lower ledge. Climb straight up past more bolts though pockets and blocky holds eventually heading up the ramp to the base of the left facing corner and corner crack. Climb the corner and crack past one bolt to anchors on the left at the upper ledge. Lower/Rap or continue up past two more bolts staying left and out of the orange corner. Watch out for loose rock near the top. It's got a more alpine feel but remains fun as you "get up high" on the wall. Chains at the top.

Location 

On the right side of OT.

Protection

5 bolts plus two anchors with SS biners on chains. The top of the chains should be attached to the bolts with quick links not SS biners where the gates are taped shut (!).
