Description

Climb the white rock ramp up and mantle onto the slab. Clip the sketchy first bolt and step around onto the land of lichen. From here high step, crimp and split your way up through what seems to be a never ending forest of lichen. Make a committing move out over the top of the route with a lot of air under your feet and clip the anchors! Check out the view! This route could use a lot more traffic to clean it up some.

Location

The obvious arete climber's left from Chopping Bloc that has a very high and sketchy first bolt.
Lower down.

Protection

7 bolts with a 2 bolt anchor

This rig would be classic if it was cleaner. Like Bullet In the New Sky Jr. Feb 22, 2014

This is an amazing, definitely overlooked route. I think it would receive four stars if it was cleaned up and not covered in lichen. Still incredibly fun with cool moves - just be prepared to make it rain pieces of lichen in your eyes or down to your belayer. You need a really long stick clip to reach the first bolt. Dec 4, 2017
