  • Description 

    This route is at the lower southwest corner of the Krishna formation, next to the creek. Start about 15 feet right of a very large detached block/pillar.

    Climb a right-facing corner for about 30 feet, until you can step left to a short vertical crack. Follow the crack to the bottom of an arete. Climb the arete (11) past 3 bolts to a scoop. Pass two more bolts in the scoop to a two-bolt anchor. Lower down (caution - 90').

    Description from vainokodas.com; used with permission.

    Location 

    On the lower Krisha formation, right of Black Pool. About 100' left of Escutcheon (on the lower slab of Wall of Winter Warmth).

    Protection 

    5 bolts and small-to-large gear; 2-bolt anchor.
