Just above the longish crux start of Paladin.


Though a good route with an enjoyable crux, the upper headwall is not as solid or as enjoyable as most of the other lines in the area. The crux involves technical crimping on smooth edges.

Snake up the thin lower wall to reach easy slab climbing at the fourth bolt. The horizontal break offers a good shake, then follow good jugs over the bulge, and awkward liebacking to the anchor.

A "Paladin" is Knight-like figure of a royal court, especially in the case of the "Twelve Peers" of Charlemagne's court.


Begibbing from the top of the detached flake that leans against the wall. Also the 5th bolted line from the right end of the cliff.


~10 bolts to 2BA.
