Dan Brockway galloping up the Rohan finish.

Description 

The Riders of Rohan rode across the immaculate planes of Rohan, and the The Rohan Face climbs the immaculate face left of P3 of Training Day. Once again, what seemed harder on jugs, melted away on the sharp end of the rope. Clean rock that follows discontinuous seams and and an arete may pick up the irregular crack at mid point. Staying left of the crack would add a number grade, but may be too forced to be worth the added spice. Rap back to the top of P2 of TD, or walk off to the North. Three stars for the clean climbing that makes a nice moderate ascent of Ra.

Mark snagged the FFA via TD linking it all up clean a whistle.

Protection 

A dozen draws and a sixty meter rope. This variation pitch has a rap station at the top and bolt that can be used alternatively if you plan on walking off. For the walk-off, pull up over the top and tie in on the big block. It's useful to leave enough cord that you can look back down to the other climber.
