Tomb Raiders is located in the center of the southeast face of The Crypt. The crux is the powerful bulge to a mantle at the first bolt. Step right from the second bolt to 5.10 slab moves up to a ledge separated from the main wall by a gap. The third bolt protects the height-dependent span across the gap (6 foot tall or jump!) to jugs and another mantle, then 5.8 slab past the 4th bolt up to the lower-off anchor. Maybe two out of five stars.


I placed a #3 camalot in the horizontal crack on the left before the first bolt, then 4 bolts to a 2-bolt lower-off anchor. 70 Feet.

Mantelicious! I have a dim memory of leading this one, but bailed on the lead this time. If you can get through the punchy moves and get your foot high, you've done the physical crux. Don't blow it with your feet above the bolt, wouldn't be pretty.

At 5' 11.5" I barely made the reach at the third bolt, would have hated being shorter. Nov 20, 2016
