Description

You may have noticed that all the really "bad" routes at Rumney have been entered by me. Well I happen to like "bad" routes. I guess I look for the best in every route. This one was good for a laugh due to the copious amounts of lichen (as the name implies) raining down in my eyes and showering my belayer. I found the second pitch to be really fun with less lichen.

Pitch one: Climb the poorly protected lichen coated dike to a nice ledge where you can belay or link it up with pitch two. Although I found this pitch to be funny it would be quite serious if it was anywhere near your limit difficulty wise.

Pitch 2: Follow a crack up the corner to the top. I liked this short pitch a lot.

Location

On the right side of Triple Corners look for the dirty dike left of most of the sport routes.

Protection

First pitch takes almost nothing for gear. Pitch 2 protects well with a regular rack.

Rap off to the ground.
