Description

The left side of the feature dubbed "Lichen Fun Slide", is a nice corner system. The rock on the main face is pretty solid, but the wall on the left side of the corner is suspect. About 20m high escape left onto a ledge with anchors. This last move adds some fun exposure.

Continuing up the left side of the "Lichen Fun Slide" is a daunting prospect. The upper headwall appears crumbly, steep, and poorly protected. Good luck (but perhaps bad judgement) to those who dare. If a longer climb is desired one can continue up Meanderthon or traverse over to "Lichen Fun Slide-right".

Location

The Lichen fun Slide is a narrow 10' wide slab bordered by two corner systems. It is immediately to the right of Meanderthon or east from Width of Reason. It currently is covered with lots of healthy green lichen.

Protection

The lichen makes it a more serious lead mentally. Small cams/wires and tri-cams (up to 1.5") are all one should need. The belay ledge has a good bolt and piton connected by multiple poot slings.
