High on Silmarillion


Mostly thin face and slabby with a couple easier sections tossed in. Good variety. A bit run out in places, but mostly on easier ground. Has a second pitch but I haven't done it.


Two routes left of "Middle Earth", climbs in and left of a large seam about 20 feet up. Rap to anchors on "You Betchy..." and rap again to the ground.


Bolts & bolt anchors

Pitch 1 is 15 bolts to anchors.
Pitch 2 is 8 bolts to anchors.

The route is too long to be combined into a single 60m pitch (bulge before roof); even with a 70m we came up just short (roof). My 70m might have been shortened as there wasn't much difference between the 60m and 70m.

The second pitch starts dull but ends with a great roof 200ft off the deck. Awesome!

Another great slab climb with very well bolted thin cruxes.
