Description

(Originally named Anduril, but name taken) Mantle onto a ledge to clip the first bolt, then work up and right to some really big knobs where you can get the fixed pin. Continue up to a bolt then move right (crux) to better holds and and another bolt. From here it is a very long runout (5.7-5.8) to a good ledge and the next bolt. Continue to the top passing a couple more bolts along the way.

The route was done ground-up, some drilling was done from hooks, and was completed on the second effort. The first attempt failed when a handhold broke off, resulting in a 35' fall from 40' up, as well as lots of blood, stitches, and rock rash. Second effort went much better, but the route needs one more bolt.

The sword Narsil was broken in the overthrow of Sauron at the end of the Second Age.

Location

The route is on the north side of Carchost. The easiest approach is to hike about 75' downhill from Goldberry Lane and then veer left to the route, which climbs up just right of the obvious corner.

Protection

Take 8 draws for bolts and a few long slings for horns and knobs. There is a rappel anchor on top.
