Christina. Christina is the left side of Henly Quits exfoliation slab behind Camp 4. Dave Davis and I completed this climb in May. The first pitch (F10) is a 5 to 7-inch crack with poor protection which ends at a small ledge. The protection bolt on the second pitch is used for a belay anchor. This pitch traverses right and up to a bolt, then left with a mantle to two more bolts used for aid (bring two tie-offs). Stepping off the second bolt, difficult free climbing leads to another bolt which protects the traverse right to the final 10 feet of Henly Quits. Take nuts, 2 Lost Arrows, 1-?", 1-¾" 1-1¼",1-4". Two bolts are in place for the rappel to the ground. NCCS II, F10, A1.
