FA Or Dare


The climbing is relatively sustained on the headwall but well protected with bolts. Technical climbing with some less than obvious side pulls (think bolted trad route).


Climb the first pitch of The Truth. Or Dare goes up and right and then straight up the headwall. The second pitch of the Truth goes up the right facing corner on the left. Rap the route (first rap is ca. 90 feet).


12 bolts, clip long trad draws on the first, third, fourth and last bolts. A triple sling is better on the third bolt (not necessary). Anchors and chains at bolt belay stations.

With a bit of back-cleaning and running out the first pitch I was able to combine this with the first pitch of "The Truth" to lead this in one pitch. I back-cleaned the first two bolts on "The Truth" skipped the mid-anchors and used long slings on a few bolts and the rope drag wasn't bad at all. Able to get down with one rappel with a 70m rope.
