This is the 4-bolt sport climb on the short, slightly overhanging face on the left side of the formation.


4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Back in the bolt war days.....when Sutton's landlord found out he had rap bolted the route, his landlord kicked him out of the room he was renting. "I can't live with a rap bolter" the landlord told me, and Sutton went unforgiven.

In Contempt was done ground-up BTW.

Great story. But also because of the film?

Yep. The Eastwood film had just come out a few years prior. A double-entendre.
