The Delta Quadrant – 5.12a (trad)

Description:   (under review)

The Borg, telepathic pitcher plants, macroviruses – the Delta Quadrant is a death trap!

-Kathryn Janeway

Climb ´Voyager’ (Burly 5.11) to a nice stance, from there, put a long sling on the anchor and work left though the thinning crack under the roof until it’s possible to surmount it on the left. Clip a bolt, climb into an alcove then follow a couple bolts out right onto a tricky face. Some heads-up 5.10 leads into a beautiful hand crack corner (visible from the approach trail) and the anchor at the very top of the cliff. 70m rope mandatory to lower.

    The extension of ´Voyager’ going through the thinning crack under the roof. Long and adventurous, full value pitch. 70m rope barely gets you down *Tie a knot in the end*. Good gear on the hard bits, but there is some runout 5.10 climbing near the top. Rack : Triple .5 to # 3, one # 4, 12 to 14 extendable draws. 3 protection bolts on the extension but the crux is over good gear.
