Description:

This is the farthest to the right bolted route thus far at Glenda's Pile. These routes are all pretty new and the bolts still shine. The routes don't have names that I know of, so we just call this the 5.9 slab. Awesome steep face with a couple bare spots. Nice rest ledge about halfway up and then some more nice thin moves to the anchor.

4 out of 5 stars Great climb!

The first couple moves off the ground are probably the hardest. Good Route! I would say that the rating is right on at 5.9. But most of the climbs in MQT are overrated IMO. This climb would be a 5.8+ at Devils Lake State Park. Fun Climb though!

4 out of 5 stars Height issues?

I'll admit I haven't been on this route in a while but when my boyfriend and I put it up 10 years ago I didn't notice any height issues. Oh, I'm 5'2" BTW.

4 out of 5 stars slab it on

Bolts aren't that far apart as other ascent note would lead you to believe. Tall person can even reach the first bolt from the ground. I'm not that good at rating things, but I'd say if its in the 5.9 range, then its a hard one
