Description

This line lies between Ethereal & Phantasm on the left side of Cenotaph Crag. It starts with a couple thin cracks over a bulge, past a bolt, pin, and a bolt. The top is quite thin. Opposition seems key.

Location

This is between the blackish area and the arete on the left side of the crag.

Protection

Cams, 2 bolts, 1 pin, 2 bolt anchor.

Per Andrew Zaslove: the pin was loose and was removed. The big death block halfway up also fell out. Now there are 4 bolts and a couple pieces in between.

I think this is 11a, but the crux is short and near the top. Lower, the route is easier but still hard 5.10. Sep 21, 2014

Not 11a. Hard though. Balancy and strenuous.

I replaced the two bolts on this about a year ago. Also took out the pin that was hiding a perfect purple Metolius. The top anchors must be seen to be believed. Aug 7, 2012
