Description 

Crucifix is a good route, but not nearly as quality as its neighbor, The Steeple. Start on the thin spire to the left of No Mystery Here (5.7). This route is on the right (uphill side) of the spire. Follow a bolted line up which joins the Steeple (left) for the last 3 bolts.


Protection 

9 or 10 bolts, 2-bolt anchor with chains at the top.

CONDITION REPORT 

Climbed it on August 13 2012. Bolts # 3, 4, 5 and 6 are beyond loose!!! I could unscrew them by hand. A little unnerving when it is 4 bolts in the row... even on a moderate route. Good climbing, just dangerous right now, so some maintenance would be granted. I did not have my wrench with me...:)

Lots of tiny crimps. Your toes will throb. Resist the urge to head right of the bolts.
