Description

D-Day 5.5 * (200'’) F (17b)
Begin about 50’' down and right of the other upper “Ledge” routes (“A, B, & C”). From the lowest point of the wall (atop the large boulder at the single bolt anchor) climb up the rocky rib following the bolts, past the low angle slab to the upper headwall. Good consistently fun climbing (except for the 50'’ long 4th class scramble up the middle section) leads to very nice rock up high. Belay at the 2 bolt anchor just below the top. A 60m rope just barely reaches (so use a couple of long draws above the middle rap anchors and have the second tied in and ready to climb from the start), an inexperienced team may want to do it in 2 pitches (belay at the rap station half way up).

There are a few ways to descend. Walk off to the east (easy gully with lots of loose rock) or two single 60m raps down the route via the rap anchors at the top of the 4th class section, then walk off down East gully or walk west and continue rapping down Mercy Street (on the Middle Earth Wall).

Location

On the right end of the upper Ledge area, best approached by the scree slope at the far right end of Burge (right of the base of Raptor Wall). Traverse left from the scree where possible up a series of rocky ledges (2 fixed ropes here) to access the base of the upper wall (The Ledge is the right side of the upper face).

Protection

fixed - 17 bolts
