Description

The Right Deception Crack is possibly the most climbed route at West Elden. This route lies in a left facing corner to the left of Five Easy Pieces and Megadeath. Climb an easy slab to access the corner. Liebacks and jams lead to the clifftop.

Descent - Rappel from a two bolt anchor.

Both Metolious anchors are spinning at the moment. If someone wants to bring a wrench and tighten them down that would be awesome. If they don't tighten, they will need to be replaced. Jul 3, 2015

Good for a beginner lead, with lots of rests between sections of steep crack climbing. Jamming is generally much easier than laybacking this route. Oct 19, 2016
