"Multiple Blues" climbs the golden slab left of "Tipendicular" via a thin, C-shaped crack. Although very low-angle, it is harder than it first appears and is on high-quality rock.
The route begins with a rising traverse left, immediately creating a hazardous fall as the ground drops away abruptly. Make sure the belayer is anchored! The first 20' is difficult to protect and involves delicate climbing, but once established in the crack, adequate gear can be found. Bring multiple blue TCUs. A bomber gear anchor can be made atop the route, then one can easily downclimb to climber's left, belayed perhaps, to the bolt and pin rappel above "Left Out".
Single rack from RPs to #2 Camalot, with extra #0, #1, and #2 TCUs. The largest pieces will comprise the anchor on top.
