  • Description 

    Climb the left facing dihedral to a 2 bolt anchor (100'). Note: This is a good pitch to do in it's own right. P-2 Climb out left and up through bulge at 2 fixed pins to another corner feature. Follow corner past more fixed gear (including a good bolt)to near the end. Bail out right and up a sketchy techno face to a belay. P-3 Continue to the top.


    Location 

    Start on the obvious left facing corner just right of the large cave feature of Pansie Wall.


    Protection 

    standard rack. Some of the fixed pins are in bad shape, as is the rock that they are placed in. IMO, a single bolt at the crux would much improve on the 2 pins that currently protect it.

    I agree with you on those crux pins. A single bolt there would be better. A great route none the less.
