DescriptionTraverse right on a ledge to get onto a pinnacle. P1 The thin crack is taxing, but does take nuts and thin cams, the crux involves technical and slightly desperate moves. P2 Your mates' big lead. Up a shallow ramp to the meat of P2. Thin face leads to an apparent impasse, but a sly move left (the Iron Cross) bypasses this to lead to a shallow ramp with pins, more face leads to the top. A long a worrying pitch, but brilliant (when you've done it).
ProtectionNuts, thin cams, bolts, pins.
P1= #3-6 Stopper,(2) #.5 Camalot, fixed pin (?), #3 Steelnut*, #2 Alien
Crux move pro...crux here feels like 5.11a++ when you are fiddling
with gear...it's pumpy, but the nut & cam are bomber.
P2= Stoppers (#3-8...bring a set), 4 bolts to crux, two fixed pins (?), #2 Steelnut,
then four more bolts to top...Extend second to last bolt w/dbl runner
In '92 when I led this pitch the last bolt was 1/2 pulled out, so I
Looped a wire cable from a small stopper over it to tie it off
Top Belay= I used a #1.5 & #2 Tricam
