It sucks you


Luxor is a fun route that goes up a big corner with lots of chimneying without the need of big gear. You can treat pulling the roof like an offwidth of chimney around it.


It is to the right of Verachocha.


A set up to a #4 Camalot.

Bring your long sleeve shirt for this one. The middle section of the route has some grainy, exfoliating rock which adds to the excitement. The business up high is on quality stone. I found a new #4 Camalot helpful at the squeezey crux.

Descent beta: if you want to skip the top out scramble and walk-off, you can reach the Verachocha rap station with a short traverse left in the dike rock above the Luxor chimney. The rap is a FULL 35m, so put some stopper knots in the ends of your 70m rope just in case.
