  • Description 

    Please Close Lid lurks across a 40-foot wide gully from The Recreant, the lowest sport route of The Enigmas. These are located near the summit of Lumpe Tower in a deep and shady cleft and offer that extra pitch or two after completing one of the myriad classics on the 'front side' of Redgarden Wall. Ten feet right of a large pine tree opposite the sport routes is a short, attractive seam leading to a ledge with two bushes. Begin in the seam with small hand and footholds climbing on its right side, until after just 20 feet of bliss the route yields to jugs and the ledge. It's kind of fun while it lasts.

    To descend, scramble easily up the crest of the rib above Please Close Lid until even with the highest sport route of The Enigmas, Lex Loci. Downclimb 10 feet back into the gully beneath the routes. This is likely the same downclimb that got you here in the first place.
