Crux is finessing to the first bolt on thin friction moves.

On some topos this route is misnamed "Anubis (5.9)".


Leftmost bolted route on the Hippo Wall. Two metolius rap hangers at the top (rounded, so you can thread the rope through and rappel off). Two ropes or a single 70m should do it.


Nine bolts

Climbed this fun route just yesterday. Contrary to the description, there was only one Metolius rap ring. We added another one. Now there are two for rappelling down nicely! Jun 12, 2017
