Rockies - Bankhead Buttress
Hi MCR Team
I climbed the first 7 pitches of Dan’s Delight last week. The first pitches seemed dirty. When arriving at the 3rd belay it was obvious (see photo) that there had been a recent rockfall event 2m right of the station. I cleaned the remaining hang fire.
Our party climbed up to the top of P7. There was additional loose rock at the final roof below the station on P7 that we also cleaned.
We carefully rappelled the route (saddle bagging ropes all the way down) to avoid rockfall and chopped ropes.
The route could use a good sweep following the rockfall.
