Description

This is the route that ascends the face just to the left of the painted #7. A great pitch but harder than it looks. The crux is getting from the slab up into the first crack, and then from that face, over the roof, into the next crack. Well bolted at both curxes. A fun outing is to link this pitch with Leh'd Back which is above and to the left of this route.

[Hide Comment] Awesome route, the name Taley comes from an Indian food dish which features a bit of everything just like this climb. It has some face, roof, and cracks. It takes a good tough move to come from under the roof up into the last crack. Jul 17, 2013
