Chill Time (22) new route at Yellowwood

Post by Brussel » Mon Oct 09, 2017 9:49 pm

Chill Time 150m 22 ****
On the Sublime Time buttress. Start just to the right of Some Time at the base of an obvious open book.

Pitch 1 25m (18)
Climb up the open book to the roof, move left onto some suspect panels and up through the notch in the roof. Continue up and belay at the base of some pillars.

Pitch 2 40m (18)
Continue up and right of a black water streak to a crack system, follow the cracks up to a small stance at a climber’s friend

Pitch 3 40m (16)
Continue up the crack system and left of the roof to the ledge below the final wall

Pitch 4 20m (17)
Climb up the broken looking rock up a recess and then up towards the left to a tiny ledge under the roof (this pitch is shared with Quality Time)

Pitch 5 25m (22)
Crank desperately up the crack in the roof using jambs and finger locks to establish yourself on the face. this is slightly left of Sublime time. Continue up the crack to the top ledge. This pitch can be linked with the previous one. It can also be bypassed by stepping left off the tiny ledge and using the top pitch of Some Time to make a more moderate climb.
