A steep and balancy start that leads to a beautiful face crawling out of the trees with great positioning and nice exposure. One of the nicest belay ledges on the entire formation! A 70M gets you to the ground with a bit to spare, so use caution when descending.
South West side of the Ephel Duath. First bolt is about 12 feet off the ground behind a pine tree and right of the cleft that seperates Ephel Duath and the Guardian. 1 70M rope gets you down with a bit to spare.
9 bolts and chain anchors. A double shoulder length runner for a flake midway up, or a finger sized piece, may clam the nerves just a touch...
