Description

Look for the "lizard head". Pull on the "head" to the crimp above. Fun line. This one is more of a summer/fall climb as this face is one of the few that seep in winter, due to the north facing direction.

Location

Lizard head is located just to the left of the start of Karen Crack. A 2-3 finger protruding hold (the lizard head) marks this route. Set up your TR by going up the access path around the north side of Karen. About 2/3 of the way up, look for a path to a ledge on your right. This can be deadly slick if wet.

Protection

Bolts on the ledge above the route. Long slings.

The beginning of this route is exhausting, but after the first 15 feet there were nice crimps and finger holds in the crack. Fun climb all the way through to the top. Jun 3, 2016
