Description 

This route lies in the back right of a small alcove just west of Deck Chairs on the Titanic. Start on the right side of the alcove, about 10 yards to the right of Pee on Dee, and move up to the nice ledge. Follow the crack up and left. You can't use the huge ledge at the top of the climb on the left side - you can use the crack, but no feet or hands on the top of it.


Protection 

3 bolts to a 2 chain anchor. Addendum: there are optional gear placements to protect you before the 1st bolt.

Gear Alert

As of Tuesday May 31, this had scary spinners on the top bolt anchors. I could loosen and tighten them with my fingers!

Start directly underneath the first bolt for a more interesting climb.

Route has newer Fixe anchors w/rap rings. Lots of monster holds. 5.7+ in my book.

WTF, will the morons with the MAGIC MARKS leave them at home. There is a good guidebook, we do not need the routes grade and # on the cliff in magic marker, Graffiti.

Fun, easy climb, 5.7.

Currently there is only one anchor bolt on the face at the top. (Likely over torqued and sheared off.) Fortunately, there are 2 bolts with chains just up over the top to belay from. (It's nice to belay at the top.) Then you can rap' or walk off.

Got to the top and found only one anchor. Didn't realize there were chains just over the edge, so I down-climbed to the anchors on "Pee on Dee", then down-climbed, and back-cleaned all my draws.

I'd recommend changing out the one ring anchor for a standard hanger. That way folks will know to continue up until they get to the chains.

Great route, hard start! Will take a nice cam in the first crack if you don't want to pull the crux unprotected on your way to the high first bolt.

Walked up the gully and top roped off the chains. Great starter climb. This pics shows going off to the left more towards Pee on D. You can get creative with how you approach getting up.

Anchor bolt is still missing. Don't trust those chains on top either. Both studs wiggle in their holes....
