This demanding route has consistant .11 moves prior to the the .11+ moves about 2/3 of the way up. Exit a mantle to easier and juggie climbing left to the northwest arete and chains.


This route is on the great rock of the west side of "The Dinka Pillar." Quick and easy approach!


Start with a 00 metiolus to stifle the zipper of five or six "small" wires and/or off-sets. The upper section takes a .3 and .4 BD along with runners for the chains.

Reasonably hard on TR, this looked like a serious proposition on gear. The crack never opens up enough for finger locks but looks like it would gobble small nuts (ha!). Proud send by Roy! Jul 28, 2014

All thrills, no spills on small wires! Jul 29, 2013
Good to see you got the rotpunkt, Roy! Is the "leap of faith" obligatory or did anyone do it statically? Jul 29, 2013
