Description

Classic low angle face climbing up a left leaning crack / flake. The first moves are probably the hardest, but best to be solid before going too high on this one.

Location

On the backside of the Diaphanous boulder, easiest to cut behind boulders from the upper Michael Kenyon Area. It is also possible to approach on either side of the Diaphanous boulder. Watch out the rock is quite slick on the approach.

Protection

Probably best not to fall, but a pad can protect the start, and it's possible to step off onto the wall behind if necessary. Descent, walk right off of Diaphanous boulder and step across onto a small boulder. Continue straight on this boulder and it's possible to scramble down the low angle backside.

[Hide Comment] This is an amazing problem! It will only take you one attempt and it would be a terrible shame if you made the trip without climbing it! May 12, 2013
