Final Drop into Buckskin Gulch
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Downclimb the crack and ledges seen (exposed Class 4).
My wife doesn't like exposure, so you can see that I set up a 100' length of static rope for her to use as a handline. I found a nice, solid bolt to use as the anchor. However, there was nothing nearby to back it up.
Just because the bolt was nice and solid when I was there doesn't mean it will be when you are. Remember to test all existing bolts and anchors as thoroughly as possible!
