Description

The exact location of this great finish to On the Lamb is hard to describe, but basically, it heads up from that route just as the climbing eases off. It is right of the route Carpet Crawler at some large hollow blocks below a short, left-facing corner. Climb up this to a bolt, then continue to a bolted anchor (with the words "jail" and "break" on the bolts). This anchor is only 30' above On the Lamb. From here, follow a left-leaning dike past bolts and up to a bolted belay in a hole. One final, easier pitch leads up past a few more bolts to a gear anchor near the top of Lamb Dome. This is a fine way to finish On the Lamb -- the climbing is steep & clean and allows for a nice way to summit the formation.

Protection

Mostly draws & some gear from On the Lamb for the final anchor.

It is good to safe some gear to make an anchor at the start of this var. in the crack of On the Lam. Making anchor in the corner according to Supertopo guidebook doesnt make sense and is not comfortable. The few flakes after the corner dont seem to be solid enough.

The switch from pumpy crackclimbing to delicate knobbing is a nice challenge. Jun 9, 2016
