Description [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

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

Protection [Suggest Change]

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
