Description 

Good basic bolt chaser with a thin crux and a little run- out. Nice rock and climbing. Also another similar line (White Knights ? sorry Claude ) next door.


Location 

Above and right of the Cracks. Approach from the north end ice ramp and move up and left to a slab


Protection 

Bolts a bit thin

This route currently needs cleaning but looks in better condition than its neighbors (which need exhuming). I think the Webster guide lists three bolts but I could only see what looked like a fairly manky pin down low and then two bolts up high. Old school run-out.

This route is cleaner and climbable. The pin at the bottom can be backed up. The climbing up to the bolt is all there but given the position can feel bouldery and mentally a little cruxy at the grade. Once past the pin, make a mantle on to little shelf and a "thank god" bolt. Then, bust out some thin hard slab moves up the steep unfeatured wall past a the next bolt to a tricky top out.

Probably great practice for harder slab climbing as its bark is likely bigger than its bite.

Fun climb.

I don't remember a pin on Thresher ? The rest of the description matches though. Big reach in the middle.
