Description [Suggest Change]

Steep friction at the start leads to much easier ground above. The opening moves are hard but the climbing above is fun. The whole thing has a runout feel, but that's friction climbing I guess. The Bingham guide shows this route shares anchors with the route to the right (Truth is Stranger than friction) but we found a separate set of rap bolts for this line above the small moss cover step.
Needs more traffic to clean up.

Location [Suggest Change]

After walking around the corner to the Lost world, walk past the alcove below a bolt Line (12A to 10B) and along the base of the wall for about 20 yards. This is the first line you come to.

Protection [Suggest Change]

6 bolts to rap bolts, no chains.
