Voltzwagen on the Solar Panel

Approach:

Park as for ‘Little Russia’, and the ice climbs End of the Line and Lovely Parting Gifts. Hike up the ridge on the North side of the Peskett Canyon Drainage. Rather than dropping off the ridge into the drainage as for Little Russia, continue up the ridge. Look for yellow flagging tape which will mark the way for 20 minutes.

This spot is where the creek from the farthest left gully on Mt. Elliot crosses the highway. Hike along a rail on top of the hill on the right side of the creek. Follow this for about 20 minutes to the base of the cliffs, skirt some smaller cliffs on the right.

Overhead Hazard:

The routes in this zone are ‘fresh off the press’ Rocky Mountain limestone climbing. As such, expect some loose rock. A great deal of effort has been put into cleaning and developing this zone but it’s still new (developed in 2020).

Other Parties:

Drop your packs at the large dugout which is 30 meters south of the cliffs base, and gear up there. Climbers on P1 of Voltzwagen will potentially drop rock on the start of AA.

P1: 5.8, 45m, sport

Start up and right of Batteries Not Included, scramble loose terrain and clip two bolts on the way to the ‘loose weakness’. climb through this to much better rock as you step right and follow bolts to a station.

P2: 5.8, 35m, sport

Runnels and ridges with a bit of slab

P3: 5.7, 35m, sport

Start left, dance right, clip the second bolt and make a unlikely foot traverse out left. Follow bolts to a station.

P4: 5.8, 35m sport

Great climbing leads to lower angle terrain and a rappel ring station.
