Making the crux mantle on Valkyrie, 5.9+.


A great climb, traditionally done in 2 pitches, however, with twin ropes you can easily do it in one magnificent pitch.

1. Start on the front face of the pinnacle and climb the right slanting hand crack. At end of the crack make a tricky move up and right around to the South face to a belay on the ledge.

2. From the belay ledge climb directly up to a good slot in the wall above. From the slot make a long reach left to a ledge. Mantel precariously onto the ledge, and then finish up the slabby south face.

pretty hard for HVS 5a I thought. Awkward start too. Pumpy and a bit scary.
