16-May-2010: Pavel leading Bits 'n' Pieces (5.9)
Emergency Closure Announced - Resurrection Wall MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is a fun route that climbs up a water streak. The rock is good and the climbing is fun. Be aware that there are additional bolts that continue straight up after the 5th bolt. The rock becomes less stable and the anchor bolts take two ropes to reach the ground. You are better off traversing right to the three bolt anchor.


Protection 

This is the furthest route to the left on the wall. It continues up 5 bolts and then traverses right onto a ledge where you have a three bolt anchor.

See Brad Young's latest Pinnacles guidebook (2007) for info on Bits and Pieces Extension (5.9). The route is ~90' high and has 8 bolts. The anchor is shared with Wet Paranoia (5.9, TR) and one 60m rope was sufficient to rap to the ground.
