Use the right-slanting crack to gain the intimidating looking off-width that goes for 15 feet then pinches to fists and hands to a ledge on top. Reach in the back of the OW to find buckets.


The route is 50 feet to the left of The Lord of Wisdom and climbs the obvious offwidth. Walk off, or rap The Lord of Wisdom.


#1, #4, #5 some small stuff for the anchor on top. Build an anchor on a great ledge.

Isn't arm-barring offwidth? Really neat climb. Sep 19, 2013
Great climbing and a bit intimidating but not as bad as it looks. The rock is great and the OW section is short and easily bypassed with some stemming and arm-barring. Aug 17, 2011
