|The Second Quarry
This route is located on the outward facing rock just right of the deep canyon area that has the overhung orange face on it.
It is sistinctive because it has a diagonal rightward facing dyke for the first 10 feet of the route, and a bolt near the top of it.
Climb up the dyke to the first bolt, and then over a bulge to the next. After standing up over this bulge, all holds dissappear. Tiny pinches and delacate footwork on a fairly steep slab are all you get until just after the last bolt, where there is a large ledge. If you're over 6 feet, you're done here. If you're not, there is one more excellent commiting move to get you clipped into the top anchors that's absolutely terrifying.
6 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

Holy shit!! this route will test your tips,both hand and feet, and keep you wimpering like a little beeatch to the anchors. DAMN I love this route. The first time I did this route I was going from the 3rd to the 4th clip( crux)and realized something was'nt right with my shoes. I had just gotten them resoled from Marmot and figured it out, they gave me two left feet, that's right they put two left soles on my mocs. So there I am holding onto nubbins the size of erasers with two left feet. But I got it, as I cursed the A-hole who did this to me. the moral: Don't get your resole done at Marmot.
