Looking for info on the climb(s?) at the left end of the Echo Roof area.
Troy and I started/finished our day over there today; we usually do a couple pitches to warm up and see if gravity's likely to bitch-slap us and if the answer's "no", we feel safe to go find something harder.
I've never really bothered to figure out all the routes, as they wander all over, go at similar grades and kinda end up ... somewhere. Which is all that matters, mostly.
However, I could swear that the left-most climbs, just right of Last Tango, had a bolt or two on the upper slab to mitigate the potential groundfall as you're heading to either the way-upper anchor (Reverb?) or that rat's-nest of cord on 4 pins mid-way up. Looking at J. Handren's book, in addition to Relic/Artifacts/HL/Reverb, I think I've done both Bulletproof and Ladies and Gentlemen at some point?
Both kinda in here?
But I poked my head out somewhere just right of that shallow upper book today and saw ... diddleysquat for gear, which lead to some traversing way right to that weird anchor in the divot (maybe Holy Land?). I know I've climbed that part of the upper slab before; I just can't remember if there was the occasional sol'n pocket or maybe today I couldn't see a pin or bolt, or maybe I was on bath salts the last time and didn't do the math before heading out above the really good gear in the first half of those climbs.
Anyhoo, it looked blank to me today, and I'm not quite sure why. I wasn't far LEFT enough? Faulty memory? Ken Nichols has returned to foil our moderate slab dreams? WTF?
edit: wow! that's a sucky pic. sorry
edit #2: There's a shiny bolt up and left of the divot anchor, which will get you to the 4-pin lashup on pretty easy ground. I'm wondering about the slab probably 10-20' left of that area, directly above the lip of those last two climbs. Thanks.
