Cemetery Face

Two more lines were established on Cemetery Face in Portugal Cove this morning.

First was a 5.7 Trad line called Shrouded. I placed four pieces plus two top bolts. It follows an irregular crack which made placing cams problematic. It should be fine with passive pro.

Second is a 5.8 sport line called Shallow Grave. It has four bolts plus two top bolts for anchors (same as Shrouded). The line is only 20 to 25 feet high so the bolts are tight but necessary to prevent a possible ledge fall.

I see at least 2 more lines going up on this face, one an easy 5.10 and the other 5.10+ or 5.11-. We will see.
