|Lower Blair III
Pretty Girls with Long Knives
The bottom half, and harder part of the route. Ba...
If climbed in one pitch to the top of the formation, this route is probably one of the longest in Vedauwoo/Blair. It has varied climbing, great exposure for parts of the climb, absolutely all-around fun. It is highly recommended.
This is on the northwest face of Blair III. It is left of Intimidation.
There's a bolt that protects the crux, which appears where the crack shuts down into a crackless seam.
Otherwise, this route takes gear. There are no chains nor hangers at the top, nor midway up the route where a potential first anchor/toprope anchor could be. So plan accordingly. Natural anchor on top takes any combo of #0.75, 1, 2, and 3 Cams PLUS a lot of cord/webbing to reach the lip of the formation.
