looking down the rap
From the parking spot at the base of Looking Glass, climb over
the fence, and find the start of the route just around the
corner from the fence.
The start is a move or two up a thin
crack to a ledge on the rib, and your first bolt. Scramble up
the ridge passing 1 more bolt to a 2 bolt belay.
This pitch is likely the crux, and
contains 3 well spaced bolts at the crux moves. This pitch ends
at a 2 bolt anchor and large ledge.
Scramble straight up from the belay.
There are no bolts, but it is 4th class. At the top, you will
find a bolt you can use as a belay, or clip it and head left on
the flat ledge to either a 3 piton, or 3 bolt anchor to
Leave your ropes and gear at this belay, and scramble to the
summit. From this last anchor, you can make a short 5 m ( 17 ft. )
to a ledge and window. From that ledge, and multiple bolt anchor,
it is a 50 m ( 165 ft. )
rappel to the ground. This is a fantastic rappel.
Shortly after going through the window, the walls disappear as
you rappel into the ampitheater. Amazing.
