Climb up the first 20 feet of The Mummy's Curse, then move slightly left and climb the arete and face just to the left of The Mummy's Curse chimney.


Start at the base of the obvious, right-most chimney on the east face of the Crypt (the chimney is the line of The Mummy's Curse).


Carry small to medium gear. Rappel with one rope.

If this is the route with the crummy first half to 3 bolts, it ain't 5.9.

Start in the groove, with a low piece that isn't much help. Pick your holds well after that, 'cause I pulled down a head sized piece that could have kilt somebodies. After the cruft, clip the bolt you can't see from the ground and make cool moves on positive holds. Dosey-doe and clip the second bolt. A couple of moves to the third and settle into a (currently) crumbly foot hold. Hold it together until the anchor and you've ticked another "classic". Nov 20, 2016
