Description

After the first moves, find small handholds to the 1st crux (getting your feet to an obvious foot-wide horizontal cave-in). The 2nd crux consists of finding small, hidden hand features to precarious footholds. The route continues up to series of challenging offwidth vertical cracks to the top of the pyramid. Stay in the center of the face; edges of the face are off route. A real puzzler, even for the casual 5.11 climber. Very consistant difficulty; this route easily deserves its rating.

Location

Pyramid-like formation directly right of the obvious Lost Face crack.

Protection

Top top anchors can be established on the pine ledge after leading the right-most Lost Face crack. Long webbing required.

This wall is a certainly a whole day's worth of fun with many good leads in the area too. The moves on Ibex are hard to onsight but once you've run through them once they just flow so well and also allow great rests between difficult sections. Far more technical than physical in my opinion. Jul 26, 2010
I agree that Ibex is an awesome climb. Was availble to pull it a few years back but I doubt I could touch it today. Set a a rope on lost face as well and you can play all day! Jul 25, 2010

Top rope anchors can be set on this climb also by dropping into the gully behind and left of the large boulder at the top of the Lost Face... This route is awesome but the moves may seem height dependent to some. Super awesome route. Jul 25, 2010
