Clint Casey turns the lip of the overhang on Lichet or Leave It, June 29, 2016.  Clint Casey leads the possible first ascent of Lichet or Leave It, June 29, 2016. From this perspective, the severely rightward lean of the dihedral isn't evident.   On Aug. 14, Ross Swanson and I serendipitously found two new excellent bolted lines on the left side of the obvious big slab that is just above the creek, not far upstream from Stewardess Convention and not far downstream from the Acrophile Rock parking pullout at 7.5 miles. This slab lies far below and to the west-northwest of Acrophile Rock. The left of the two routes requires gear placements to reach the first of four bolts and felt like 5.9-. The righthand route also felt like 5.9- and has five bolts. The routes share the same anchor, which is about 55 feet high.  Eagle Rock, as seen from the highway. The yellow line indicates TBGSR.  The guano glacier is barely visible as a dark spot in the left-facing dihedral just to the right of the P2 slab.   <br /> <br />The green line indicates Screaming War Eagle ("10c"), pitch one of which climbed thin cracks in the general line of Eagle Snacks (10d) before its bolts were installed.  <br /> <br />The red line indicates Gross Vogel, an old Pat Ament route, which aided the same thin cracks, then traversed farther right, along the moderately difficult ramp, before climbing left-facing dihedrals.   <br /> <br />The Frei Vogel (5.9) follows the moderately difficult ramp from near the start of TBGSR, to where it joins GV.  I climbed the FV in the late '70s with Steve Monk.   Pitch one climbed from the lower-right corner of this pic and ended below the lower-right corner of the obvious high short slab.  Pitch two climbed up the center of the slab, along a good short crack, up to an overhang, which is turned to the left of a patch of orange lichen.  The guano glacier is out of sight from this point of view, tucked into the dihedral on the right edge of the slab.
