DescriptionNazca Line is follows kind of a strange and interesting line, and frankly one of my least favorite routes here. It has a pretty heady feel to it in spots, especially starting pitch 3. get ready for an adventure!
P1. Start at the Knossos two tier bivy spot on the right side of the north facing saddle routes. Nazca Line follows the black bolts right of Knossos. note that there is a point on pitch 2 that you can join up with the upper section of P2 of Knossos, via a straight traverse left.
The gold rock at the end of pitch one feels unusually slick.
Pitch two eases off a bit to end on a good ledge, where the anchors are hard to spot.
P3. traverse the ledge/ramp right and around the corner. the first bolt is a ways up there, and a scary second clip! 5.9+
P4-5. keep following your nose and bolts up the steep weakness. good pitch.
