Description

This climb works up the left edge of south face of the Isis Buttress. It features fairly typical low angle Lumpy climbing on bottoming, hard to protect cracks.

Start on a pillar at the SW corner of the buttress. Climb easily for about 30' to a short left facing corner that forms the left side of a "hanging tooth." Work up the corner to a face and to another left-facing corner; this 30' section is continuously challenging as is protecting it, though with enough effort, good pro can be had -- mostly small wires. The crux is at the top of the 30' section after which you step left onto the the west face and join Pharaoh's Child for about 70' of enjoyable 5.8ish crack climbing. Belay at the second tree from which you also rap; a single 60m rope would probably reach the ground, but we had double ropes and rapped on both.

Protection

RPs to 2" with the emphasis on the small end.

After the crux, we moved right to the two-bolt anchor of King Tut. A 70m just makes it to the ground. With a 60m, you should be able to get to some ledges from which you can scramble down. Jun 5, 2008
