12 Looking For A Legacy 5.9


The second pitch (or extension) to Cambrian Grey. The name came from the guys at MountainWorks. When we were discussing the possibility of the route, the guys mentioned something about it adding to the legacy of a historic route.

It always seemed strange that Cambrian Grey ended so suddenly in the middle of the slab. We peeked over the roof several times and thought, "wow, that looks like fun." The resulting route is a great addition to an already great route.

Look/feel for some small but positive crimps to get past the first overlap. Moderate slabs and small short challenges typify this line.

It is very possible to do the whole thing as one long pitch.


Second pitch of Cambrian Grey right side of the wall. Two single rope raps or one double.


NINE bolts and chains

As per numerous requests to do so, I added 3 bolts to the line today 6/26/09. The 3 places that may have felt a bit run-out are now filled in. Keep in mind that this means there are now 9 bolts and chains on this line.
I also cleaned it up a bit more...

I tried but could not get over the first ledge! maybe I was tired from climbing Cambrian Grey but this is not a 5.9 move. At least not the move I was trying to make!
