PellucidWombatHardest Bolt Ladder I've Done  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 10, 2012

I've gotten quite proficient at the LeConte Boulder bolt ladder, and the Kor Roof on the S Face of Washington Column was easy. These 6 bolts kicked my butt! Definitely be ready to use your aiders in pairs on this one. Also, my short reach forced me to snag a shallow finger pocket to stay upright in the top step just barely long enough to clip the last bolt.

This is kind of a tricky bolt ladder as some of the bolts are spaced quite far apart. The two overhangs are tough to pass for amature aiders. Our stick clip (aka trusty broom stick) came in handy! Harder than Mexican Hat. Free moves at the top seemed easy. Used my new ascenders for the first time.

Climbed this along with Pensive Putterman. I had planned on climbing the 5.8 but holy cow! Took one look up and started taping the pipes to use as a stick clip. I hope you're taller than me to clip all the bolts but it works out!

Yeah, who knows about that 5.8? Always funny to see all the atv-ers raging up and down the road stop and gawk.
