Hitchcock - bolted line
« on: April 03, 2011, 10:18:40 AM »
Climbed Hitchcock gully yesterday and noticed a what looks like a new bolted mixed line on the left wall of the upper pitch. It starts about 35' farther up the pitch than Dial M for Murder. It looks to have 4 bolts on it and looks to be more of a moderate line.

Wondering if anyone has any info on the route. I almost jumped on it but it looks like rock gear may be needed between the 3rd and 4th bolt.

I think Zeb and Justin Preisendorfer put that up? Brad White knows the history and probably the beta. Looks fun doesn't it? Nice to clip the bolt on your way by too  (lol). The ice hasn't been that fat in Hitchcock for a while!
