Description

Clyncke (pronounced 'Klinky') is the self-proclaimed oldest living resident in Eldo. He has the largest hands of anyone I've ever met - rancher hands that make a climber's hands look dainty. He would pack a punch.

Start about 10 feet left of The Dispensary. Climb some loose rock (5.8) with adequate gear to good gear below the roof. The crux is getting established in the small left facing dihedral over the roof. Foot holds are licheny here, but the climbing is cool. After the dihedral ends, look for footholds that lead left traversing a few feet above the lip of the roof. Eventually you undercling a thin flake that takes you further left. From the end of the undercling, go straight up to a right-facing corner with good gear. Then continue to a ledge that you can traverse right to the tree atop The Dispensary.

Location

Start just left of The Dispensary in an obvious, left-facing dihedral. Rap down off the tree or continue up Le Toit, Rosy..., etc.

Protection

Standard Eldo rack to 2.5", emphasis on small cams. There are good 0.5-1.5" cams below the roof. A large RP or Lowe Ball to protect the crux, difficult to place.
