BETA PHOTO: Illusion Crags Main Face


First Lady of Magic climbs the corner that curves to the left forming the arch 5 feet right of Who Deany. Ascend the corner until you can reach right and pull up, on to the face. Climb up to a bolt and then head right a bit to a small ledge. Fire up the obvious crack to a ledge with a 2 bolt anchor. Rappel with two ropes.

A single rope rappel can be done to the anchors on top of Who Deany to the climber's left, followed by another single rope rap to the ground.


Gear up to #2 Camalot. Lots of small gear.

We easily top-roped this climb and rappelled with a single 70M line with room to spare. A fun, exciting climb on great rock. Reminded me a bit of Sensuous Mortician on the Necromancer wall. Be cognisant getting to the bolt, as it would require a static catch from the belayer if you fell just below it to keep you off the ground.
