Description

E.K.T.I.N. is the furthest route to the left on the F. Y. WALL. Instead of making this route 3 short pitches, I decided to make it 2 longer pitches.

The 1st pitch starts up the "Chimney Gully" and gains the arete corner out left. Beautiful, huge holds bring you up corners and roofs to the belay stance w/2-bolt anchor (120', 5.9).

The 2nd pitch climbs straight up the clean plaque of polished granite 160'. Incredible features lead past bolts and thin natural pro all the way up to share the same anchor as "Journey Through The Past".(160', 5.10c)

Protection

Bolts and gear to 2".

Descend down the "Journey Through The Past" anchors to the "Heart of Gold Ledge", then to the ground. Make three 100' rappels....
