Drilling the first bolt on the FA of Grandview
This route follows a dike feature on steep quality rock. This is a two star route with five star views. The route was climbed ground up with all protection bolts placed free on the lead by hand.
P1: Climb up a dike to stance at 20' (bolt). Step back right and follow the dike past a pin to a ledge. Step right to bolt and make the crazy exposed crux moves over a bulge. Continue up on big holds to a two bolt anchor. Enjoy the views! 50' 5.9
P2: Move up and left and clip a bolt. Continue placing gear in the corner to a stance at the second bolt. Make a tricky move and finish at a two bolt anchor. 40' 5.8
The route is located on the far left slab
