Description

Start 15’ to the left of Wet Lichen Dreams which has a bolt at 20’ to help locate the start.
P1: Riptide climbs the arête of a short buttress of stacked blocks to a small tree ledge. Climb up the slab past a bolt to an overlap with gear. Pull the overlap and continue up the left facing corner on the left side of the roof. Clip a bolt and make the crux moves exiting the corner to a small foot ledge and another bolt. Move up and follow another left facing corner to a two bolt anchor below the overlap. 90’ 5.9+ PG
P2: Climb out left onto a large ledge and clip a bolt. Make the crux moves and continue up the fun and exposed face on big holds to a two bolt anchor on top. 70’ 5.8+

Location

Obvious left facing corners located just right of the blocky corner of Orthanc.

Protection

Bring A Standard Rack.

excellent climb for the grade, very technical and some what strenno. Harder for shorties and those without a decent vertical jump.... Jul 4, 2012

The second pitch is probably the best 5.8 pitch on the cliff fun moves and great exposure Jul 25, 2013

One of the better 5.9 climbs on the cliff. The section around the first bolt seems to stay wet longer than other spots on the cliff. Aug 25, 2018
