Bjorn Thorn-Anderson removing a "body-weight" wire...


This corner system is less sutained and appealing than its neighbor. There are many suspect blocks that could pull, caution is advised. The crux is encountered right off the ground climbing directly up to the corner system by a thin seam. it can be made easier by starting slightly to the left.


A corner system just left of Patience.


A tiny wire can be placed in the seam for the direct start. Careful placements are required above, due to the unstable nature of some of the rock. Fortunatly, there are good stance to place gear.

This was an old TR and could probably be cleaned up. One or two bolts would fix the pro issue and make another good mixed route.
