Description [Suggest Change]

Time to Geshido!!!
A gnarly, cryptic crux. The first half leads out the 30 foot ceiling in a hanging, horizontal dihedral that has both crimps and jams hidden in it's dark corners. Stepping off the ground can be the crux, depending on your height. If your lucky, a couple blocks will be there to aid in grabbing the starting holds.

Pull through the ceiling, and clip one more fixed draw. Lower from here, for a sport climbing experience, or continue on to the top of the wall(5.9R, mixed)on fun, varied and steep terrain. A set of anchors is at the lip. Don't forget to look out at the valley and the Throne.

Location [Suggest Change]

on the far north end of VOB, almost at the end of the prominent cave roof. The amazing roof crack "Harvester of Sorrow" is thirty feet to the left.

Protection [Suggest Change]

First half of the route is protected by fixed draws(chains, biners). The second half of the route has one bolt, then anchors. Bring a small rack.
