Jon Howland on the well-traveled Quail Trail@SEMIC...


P1: Nine bolts, 90 feet. Climb an arete past 4 bolts. Step onto a face and climb an awkward, slippery, left-leaning seam (5.10a). Belay from bolts on a small, awkward stance.

P2: Five bolts, ~50 feet. Stem a slippery dihedral (5.10b).

The route can be climbed as one long pitch. The stance at the top anchor is much more comfortable than the one at the intermediate belay.


The leftmost route located on top of the talus slope that abuts Lower Elbow Room.

Varied, technically stimulating climbing and well protected, nice.

Fun route, but I feel that the last bolt on the first pitch could have been placed in a better location.
