Description

Climb the splitter crack in the center of The Topknot. Bouldery moves off the ground lead to great finger locks and nice jugs to rest and place gear.

This has clean rock, bomber finger locks, and good gear.

Location

This route is located on The Topknot, the summit block of the Fourth Elephant Buttress.

To descend, scramble down easy rock on the north side into the notch between the third and fourth buttresses, or scramble down the southwest side back to the top of the Fourth Elephant Buttress.

Protection

Standard rack, mostly finger-sized cams and stoppers. Tree on summit for toprope anchor.

One of 4 lines there in all. No better or worse than the others. If you were to stack them all end-to-end, then you'd have a pitch of climbing. May 8, 2008

Pretty good route. This looks like the hardest line, but is cruiser with good gear. Apr 18, 2008
