Visionaries, 5.10c

Visionaries, 5.10c

2nd Pitch- 50’- 5.10c/ Continue straight up a steep finger crack past three bolts to easier ground and rap chains above. A rattler makes those rap chains his sun spot. Been spotted on more than one occasion right underneath them. You can also go right on the ledge and finish via two bolts on what seemed like 5.9 through a roof. It is run out as whoever bolted this variation intended on it being a mixed route. The run out portion felt easy, but had decking potential. The 5.10c move or two on the original line does not seem anything like 5.10c to me. It seemed much easier. Visionaries, 5.10c, 2 Pitches, Prophecy Wall, St. George Rock, May, 2009

Does that crack not accept gear? Why is it bolted?

Looks like fun climbing.

Re: Dow

Todd Goss has received death threats (he claims) from Ron Olevsky over this exact issue I believe. He bolts everything! When I take off from the ground on a published sport route, I admit I leave any gear I might have brought to the wall behind, so I do clip them...but not all of them. Hell, he had the first pitch too tightly bolted in my opinion. The man has never seen a crack that he did not mind bolting. Doesn't believe in mixed I guess. I have never bothered asking him to explain, not worth it. Cheers Martin.
