DescriptionThis route is a great way to torch your feet at the end of the day on Helen's Dome.
Climb "Beam Me Up Scotty" and clip some runners into the anchors for a double rope toprope. If you wish to lead it, there is really good gear. But it is WAY up there, and then it is a LONG way to the anchor.
Start 10 feet left of "Fool's Gold". There is a nice water groove with a vertical [dike] of sorts (kind of like a granite tufa) just to the left of the groove. Climb straight up the series of [dikes] using many techniques. the climbing is steep, sustained, and spectacular. The final [dike] peters out at a minor headwall crux. Keep going straight up to the anchors.
There is a little bit of lichen, but it isn't the really desperate kind. This is an absolute foot cramper.
