To reach this climb before Shadowfax go right on faint climbers trail. You will see roof and climb 40 feet up the trail. This climb starts out straight forward. However, above the roof the protection is marginal and the fall potential is high. Anchor is best at the back of finish ledge 6 feet beyond end of climb. Climb finishes with fun offwidth. This is a good Mission Gorge climb if you are comfortable at the grade. Feb 9, 2006

Been to the Gorge probably 40 times and this was the first time I ever ventured to the far lower-right of Middle Earth. This climb requires a somewhat complex and convoluted TR anchor if you don;t want a risky lead. Despite that, the climb is great. Loved the roof pull and tricky off-hands at the top. Mar 9, 2015
