Unknown 5.8 (a.k.a. Rap Route 5.8)
|100 page views|
This pretty crumbly 5.8ish route doesn't appear to have seen many ascents or the rock is just pretty poor overall. As you rap down from the summit of Summit Block Rock, you pass right over this route. It starts from the saddle at the bottom of the rappel.
From the saddle, tenuously head up and left on crumbly rock to gain the crack. Gingerly work up until a small bulge in a right-facing corner. Reach up and clip the only bolt on the route and breathe of sigh of relief for some decent pro. Pull over the bulge and continue up into easier ground and the big legde with the bolt anchor and rap rings.
The route's real name and FA info would be appreciated.
Start from the saddle at the bottom of the rappels. Note, this is not the route further to the right with a single bolt protecting the lower section.
Standard rack and a single bolt to a two-bolt anchor with a rap ring.
