Description:

The obvious bolted patina face on upper Walt's Rock. Stickclipping the first bolt makes the opening moves safe. Multiple cruxes up a featured wall. Moves into a crack at the top to finish off. Although mostly bolted, this is a heady climb. Great moves the whole way.

5 out of 5 stars Sadistic First Bolt

If you blow the opening move (11a), you'll fall facefirst down a gully...the third bolt is very manky-looking (rusted buttonhead) and the next two are only a little bit better. Great moves on this climb, but the bolts make it headier than the usual Josh runouts.

5 out of 5 stars My first Stick Clip!

Great route, beautiful location. If you don't like crowds, head up Queen Mtn for tons of quality climbing. Interesting cruxes on this one! The third lead bolt needs replacing, but a manky rp can be placed shortly after it for added peace of mind.

Scary between 2nd and 3rd clips. Easy, solid climbing there but possible decking potential. A beautiful line!
