New Routes in Cleo Area

Posted: Mon, 11/27/2006 - 18:57

On saturday Kyler Pallister and I went up to the cleos area and ended up climbing the pillar to the far right of cleos. JoJo was up there and said it had never formed and that it hadnt been climbed. Anyone think its airborne ranger? Im not sure. Fun though and stable. 5+. Nice lead by Ky.

Today we skipped school and climbed the hanger to between the Matriarch and Cleos. It was hella fun.

Route description:
climb 1st pitch of cleos to ledge
walk out right on the chossy side walk toward the hanger
There is a 1 bolt anchor below hanger next to it is a good angle crack
make a few aid moves through a chossy bulge (will go, but chossy) will require a figure 4 or mad 1 arm power.
Clip a bolt and traverse left to the hanger (careful!)
Get in a little alcove and hang out before snagging ice and climbing to top!
