BETA PHOTO: Syzygy and Dyzygy variation.

Climbing restricted due to tourist safety MORE INFO >>>

Description 

30 feet left of Morning's Morning you'll see a big black roof. Sysygy climbs easy rock to the base of the roof, then turns the roof on the left with good holds. The face climbing crux comes just after the roof (protect with nut), then follow the sweet crack to the top.


Protection 

Nuts, double cams to #3 Camalot.

A very distinctive route with great climbing.

A nice variation, Dyzygy, follows the harder exit to the right.

After you do the Syzygy crux, follow the right angling crack for a harder exit. See pic, a very worthwhile climb.

Me and Haisley (I think) 79/80...

A striking pitch for the grade, and the crux is on bomber rock.

Super fun route. The crux protects very well.
