L to R R to L Alpha
This section contains routes beginning just after The Traverse and continuing to Bulletin Board. Once you drop down towards the bouldery gully below the Whale's Head, you are in Music Hall. After crossing The Traverse and stepping up onto the large and slightly tilted platform, Long's Arete rises directly overhead. Passing beneath this and over the "monobridge," Long Lane proper cuts up into the shady, dank cavernous area. Directly in front of you are a mix of easy to intermediate sport climbs of varying lengths.
Approach from North Parking Area at Ho-Mei Village. Follow shoreline trail through Puffer's Pass and past The Clocktower. Rock-hop and scramble until you get to The Traverse. Once you have crossed this, you have arrived at Long Lane. Approach time ~20 minutes.

Start up small sidepulls and pockets, making sure to clip the glue-in bolts (w/o hangers).

There are jugs up just above your head, but the angle makes for a strenuous pull. A good right-foot heel hook can make things easier. Getting pumped yet? The angle remains vertical as you approach your second, more ...[more] Browse More Classics in International
