Matt S on Walking Far from Home


Walking far from home climbs the prominent right-facing dihedral left of There Will Be Blood. Engaging face climbing on slate-like edges and features leads to the bottom of the dihedral. The climb continues up the dihedral as it narrows and steepens. The line traverses left beneath the roof and then right to reach anchors.


Start directly beneath the dihedral (just left of the small triangular roof left of the larger triangular roof at the start of TWBB/False Prophet)


This line goes on gear. Double cams from 000 to 1.5" with triples in BD .3, .4, and .5 or equivalent, nuts, rp's, and a couple ball-nuts will suffice. Two-bolt anchor with biners

After conversations with the other half of the FA party (Alex K) and the only repeating climber (Ben Williams), I have revised the description, and I think this climb may warrant an R rating. Feel free to disagree as soon as you lead it.
