Leftmost bolt line... diagonals from left to right...

Seasonal Raptor Closure - Lifted MORE INFO >>>


This is the furthest left (north) bolted line on the Stepping Stones wall. Start in a short dihedral and stem up past the first bolt, follow two more bolts straight up, keep going up (stay left of a small roof) through a hand crack (#2 Camalot, and then traverse right to the two bolt anchor atop Unknown.


From El Barrio, continue around a corner left (north) uphill, beyond Magie Noire. It is the leftmost bolted line.


4 bolts, one hand sized SLCD, 2 anchor bolts.

You'll want to check the right bolt at the anchor on this one. The hanger was spinning, and the nut was almost completely off today. I tightened it the best I could with my fingers.
