Description

This is actually a variation to the 2nd pitch of Unleash The Lions. From the anchors, move right into a sweet OW hand and fist crack. Follow the wide crack (#4 Camalot) throught the roof and then into some nice angling finger cracks. Belay up and behind a large boulder....

This route was super lichened up when we did it a couple weeks ago...not too much loose stuff though. Due to the condition of the route, I just figured that it hasn't seen an ascent yet, plus no record of it in Gillett's new SSV Book, or on the Proj.... If I'm stealing this route from anyone, please let me know and I can edit this entry.

Location

This is the 2nd pitch variation to Unleash the Lions.

Protection

SR, #4 Camalot could be useful.

The biggest cam I took up was a #6 DMM Dragon. It was exactly right for this wide section, but I had to bump it a few times, because there isn't much else for solid gear (questionable nuts behind loose chockstones, can be had) until the little roof. This would have been an excellent place for the Super Cams. So taking more than one big cam is a good idea.

Definitely a fun pitch! Apr 23, 2016
