Right facing corner between trees
Caution: Poison-Ivy MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Right facing corner left of old cables anchor. Three distinct cruxes with varied climbing. Start in stiff finger crack with excellent pro to strenuous slab moves at lower corner. A few rests exist before final overhanging crux moves to anchor. Some exfoliating rock in steeper corner should clean up. Beautiful position and views. Some poison ivy at base was easily avoidable.

A Sadhu is a holy man of Nepal. Often called Baba, meaning father or uncle. It was sort of miraculous Bob sent this first go, hanging on a wing and a prayer.


Protection 

Doubles in finger size up to red camalot. 6 bolts protect slab and steep corner. Rap from 2 bolt anchor.


Location 

Downstream longest route. Just left of old cable anchor.
