Description

This devious climb starts just right of Asgard, ascending the next prominent right-leaning crack to its right. Begin on easy moves up a discontinuous crack which heads towards a seam in a left-facing corner bearing two bolts. Done as one pitch, this trickster is a fight to the finish. (Squeezing the Lemmon quality scale: 2 out of 3 stars.)

Pitch 1 – Climb up and past the two bolts (crux) to the gear-protected crack above. Continue up this crack to its intersection with Asgard. Whereas Asgard moves over right into the crack system which Tyr eventually joins, this route continues straight up into the strenuous right-facing corner above (5.10, bearing one pin) for a direct line to the belay ledge above. Step left to a bolted anchor. 5.11+, 2 bolts, pro to 3”, 82 feet.

Pitch 2 – Ascend the short section of crack just right of the belay that gains the ledge above. The gently overhanging weakness just right of the Asgard corner bears four bolts, and leads to the bolt (replaced pin) on the traverse right out of the Asgard dihedral. Move left and up past two last bolts to the anchors. 5.11, 7 bolts, 55 feet.

Variation – 5.11 **. Start on Asgard, but after 60 feet, follow Loki from the piton all the way to the top anchors. Although this has been lead in one pitch, it can be broken into 2 pitches to alleviate rope-drag on the crux section.

Protection

Bolts, pro to 3", anchors.
