Quiet Daze 5.8 125m

F.A. of full route- Grant Parkin, Trevor Jones. (Sep 2016)

F.A. for P1 Colin Hoglund, Grant Parkin. (May 2016)

Sentinel, South End. Located several meters left of Ambulance Chaser, the route Quiet Daze is a fully bolt protected five pitch route on generally good rock. Named after a comment I’d made about it being a quiet day when I equipped the first pitch and later realized I must have been in a daze when my four pitch project turned out to have five rappels/pitches.

Descent. Although the route has been equipped to be rapped with a single 60m rope in five raps, having a 70m rope allows combining P1 and P2 in a single rap. A 60m rope requires the use of the P1 anchor or downclimbing 3m to the ground.

A walk off option requires easy climbing/scrambling an extra 10m into the forest, belaying from trees, then walking south to where the cliff breaks down. Some flagging currently exists. The trail cuts back north below the cliff to rejoin the trail along the base.

See attached topo for details.
