DescriptionThis line ascends the middle of the formation skirting the roof on the right side.
Pitch 1 (5.4)
Ascend through the blocky chunks of the sill taking the lefter of the two bolt lines. Easy but beware of LARGE death blocks. 2 bolt anchor with chains.
Pitch 2 (5.9+)
Climb up and slightly right from the chains following the right line of bolts where they diverge. Pull through a small roof (crux) and then continue up onto the slab above. Very balancy. Finishes on small ledge with chain anchors.
Pitch 3 (5.8)
Head up and follow the bolt line for another 40 or so feet until you reach another small ledge with a chain anchor.
If you have a tolerance for rope drag and healthy sense of when to sling things you can do the entire climb in one long 60-70 meter pitch. Requires 21 quickdraws and anchoring equipment.
A 70 meter rope can just BARELY make it to the 1st set of anchors from the third. Tie knots in the ends as the fall would surely kill if someone rapped off the ends. From there thread the 1st anchor and aim for the ground.
