The Polygamist


P1) Climb easy terrain to the first bolt about 30' up and then continue up the waterstreak using pebbles and cobbles past a distinct crux at the 7th bolt to finish on a large ledge with a small tree. P2) Continue up past 5 more bolts and then run it out on easy terrain to a large ledge with another set of anchors. It's easy to combine both pitches into one but the first pitch is the best.

To descend make two single rope raps to the ground with a 60 meter rope. If doing just the first pitch a 60 meter rope will get you down to the 1st bolt from which it's an easy downclimb to reach the base of the route.


The obvious waterstreak on the left side of the wall.


15 bolts, bolted anchors (bolts are all 3/8")

Fun, gritty, conglomerate slab route. Would have been well protected but every bolt was either a 1/4"spinner or wiggled more that my daughter's loose tooth.

All of the bolts on this route are currently 3/8" and solid.
