It's such a sweet climb. Deserves better than to languish in obscurity ('though in plain sight).
Maybe if it was a bit safer, more folks would get on, and enjoy it.
Curve Like Her 5.9 (+ in modern rating) 3 pitches
First pitch slightly awkward ramp to short fist crack
Second pitch- a manky pin protected a thin face traverse
a (now better) bolt protects somewhat runout face.
Third pitch- Some undercling, and an arete
we left this one for flavor- there's a gear placement nearby
The top anchor- before
rap- angling to 'cornhole' anchor- replaced one bolt, and double rope rap to ground, although you can probably do it with one rope and intermediate anchor.
While we were in the process, another party came up and climbed the route. They said they saw us, & heard the drilling. I guess this confirms the adage: "If you rebolt it, they will come."
Anyway, it's pretty safe now- check it out.
Second project: 'Trilogy'- Harlequin Dome
First pitch- cracks in a shallow corner. On the stiff side of 5.8 I thought, to moderate cracks.
Second pitch- moderate cracks to the base of slab
Third pitch- friction following a dike past 4 bolts. Says 5.9 and .10b in the book, but I whipped off the '5.9' section multiple times, and the .10b a couple, so I'd give it .10c. The Reid topo is not too accurate. Shares the (formerly 1 bolt) top anchor with 'Harlot'
Added 2 bolts to top anchor
Replacing the face bolts
The middle section of this climb is pretty low key, but the approach is short, and the scenery up top is great.
Potential new route- oddly, the camera wouldn't focus. Probably better that way.
So besides swimming, beer drinking, etc. that was the deal. Thanks to ASCA and the SAR guys for a bunch of bolts, and to the mountain spirits for having us.
