Time Enough 5.7, 70m
FA – B.Ramsay, R.Carr Oct.2006
This gear route is located on the left side of the Exit Wall in the Grotto Narrows so park and hike as you would normally. Bring gear to 2.5” and Tricams.
Pitch 1 starts in a wide runnel feature to the left of the permanent chimney passing fixed pitons, trending right when obvious. Traverse the ledge to the right towards the chimney, climb up to a bolt on the right side of the ledge, then down, traversing into the chimney and up to a bolt/pin belay. * Pins exiting the chimney to the right are from a yet incomplete project that should not be attempted until the asccentionsts figure it out as hazards exist to those below.
Pitch 2 continues up the chimney on sparse pro to a two bolt belay. One fixed pin is found mid-pitch but may need a hammer to re-seat the pin.
To descent either rap the route or scramble/rap down climbers right. A direct version has been top-roped.

This is a great little sport route that will likely be a forgotten line as time goes on since it is the only climb on this narrow steep slab. Walk up the Heart Creek trail heading south till a sign (Trail Stop #2) near an open area. Head into the woods a few minutes east to a slab. Climb about a half dozen or so bolts to a bolted anchor. The route begins behind the big dead tree. The moves are stiff and good.
