This route features many new obstacles and a lot of steep spots, including a spot so steep, some climbers thought it needed bolts. The route also features the a slot with an exit so narrow that it will grind you down. Both features are in well-known and well-traveled areas. I created this route from my own explorations.
The beginning of the hike has many steep obstacles that will get your heart pumping. There is some up and down along the way. There is a steep down climb that leads right to another obstacle. I’ll have a couple of alternate routes for those who don’t want to be go. Then we’ll pass another “not-so-secret-anymore” slot and head down again. From there we’ll wind our way back to the beginning through a few more slots. We’ll finish off with the a steep slope down.
As stated, this route goes through some popular areas. But it also goes through some areas that aren’t well-traveled at all. You can visit some not so familiar terrain and see formations that you haven’t seen before.
• Helmets are always welcome. Be sure to use one that doesn’t block your sight.
• Always carry “in case of emergency” numbers with you.
• No guests will be allowed without my prior approval.
