Door Jamb Routes
The 3 routes below can be described in detail in Chris Perry’s Bow Valley Rock guidebook, this is just to show close up photos of the area. It has been mentioned but not proven that someone has bolted some belays on Machu Picchu years ago sometime after his guidebook was published, that sounds great if true.
An enjoyable hike up to the base of the tilted slab within an hour. Drop down a bit coming onto the slab to start at its’ most true beginning point.
Machu Picchu is the on the main slab and goes up the ankle deep runnel and believe it or not goes for 5 pitches if once you reach the small tree island, you jog left toward the corner and up blank slab between two thin black steaks. However you can cut it short and go straight to the ridge in much less climbing. It was not recorded but the short right-facing corner(5.3) on the slabs far right end was also climbed.
The Light That Failed takes a narrow slab above a dead tree and after two pitches turns up the yellow wall and onto a higher slab then the top.
If you hike further up north, you will get to another slab. Go straight up over a tiny tiny roof line and el directo to the ridge. This is High Altitude Graffiti.
