Named after the source of a nightís diversion (it was the 70s), this route climbs an attractive hanging corner past a small roof on the left side of Rappel Rock. This may be RRís first 5.11 FA lead, which naturally we rated 5.10 at the time, even though none of us could follow it. The crux is brief and well-protected by gear and a pin (although, uh, if the pin is still there, it is now 34 years old!). I donít think RR would mind if the pin was replaced with a nice fat bolt.
When walking along the base of Rappel from the west, skirt past an obvious right-slanting 3rd class ramp until the wall gets steeper. Look for a hanging dihedral, presumably with a fixed pin, before reaching Baradur.
Standard trad rack. Gear belay.
