Falcon Nest above Tethys
As of October 2019 there is a falcon nesting above the first belay station on Tethys. Climber discretion is advised.
From the toe of the buttress the separates the First Corridor from the Pangea Wall, locate the wide crack/slot feature that begins about six feet from the base and angles up to the left. Climb cobbles to reach the crack and continue to a high first bolt above the end to the crack/slot. Continue pulling knobs up the slab to a very large block as the buttress steepens. into a broad arete. Here a fourth bolt is found to facilitate the transition to the left of the arete below the block. Continue climbing up the face left of the arete to a 6th bolt on a steep knobby face. Pull the crux and continue to the anchor. Rappel from here, or climb a 2nd runout pitch through large blocks and knobs to the summit.
NW corner of main rock, at the bottom of the canyon. Right edge of Pangea Wall.
P1 - 6 bolts to 2 Fixe Ring anchor. P2 - 4 bolts to chains. The route is fully bolted. Some run-out on the easier bits. Descent is best made into the First Corridor rather then rappelling the route.
