BETA PHOTO: Out of Our Mines (5.10d), Holcomb Valley Pinnacles

Description 

Start up a left-leaning ramp to reach the first bolt, which protects improbable moves (crux) to the second bolt and the end of the difficulties. Wander up a very easy, low-angled slab past two bolts to reach a perched block where vertical, featured face (5.9) past three more bolts leads to anchors atop the block.

Long and varied, with fun moves and some nice exposure up high, which makes this a recommended route for the wall.

Location 

You'll find this interesting route 25' right of Black Bart and just right of Dust in the Wind, a right-facing corner system.

Protection 

7 bolts, chain anchors

A variation of this route can be done be climbing the crack 20' right of the intended route (the start to 'Miner 49er'). A bit trivial due to the easy slab above before reaching the block. The block above is clearly the highlight.....nice exposure. Good hero shot if the light is right ;)

Originally done without the top bolt, which was later added to make it a more reasonable lead.

Broke a hold directly above the first bolt on 05/30/2011.
Probably closer to 11d than 10c before getting to the second bolt now. The rest of the climb remains unchanged.

And I was really doubting my skills when I was unable to get past the first bolt... the missing hold makes me feel much better.

Also I was wondering how far you are supposed to go up on the ramp? Is the original start left of the first bolt? Thanks.
