This shares the same start as Oasis Red but moves right after about 25 feet, across the big ledge to the base of the left-facing dihedral. Belay here and then move up the dihedral, traversing at the top under the large boulder to the anchors on Elanor.


This is a great moderate route to the right of Elanor in the left-facing dihedral. Start at the beginning of Oasis Red on the left side of the big ledge on the west face.

Rappel from anchors at the top of Elanor to the left of the top of the route.


Standard rack up to a #3 Camalot. Rappel anchors on the route "Elanor" can be reached from the top.
