DescriptionLocated on the upper wall, above the Half-Way Tree Ledge, the main features of this climb are about 25-35 ft climber's right of the double bolt anchor on the Half-Way Ledge.
ACCESS: Earlier guidebooks describe this climb as starting from the double bolt anchor and moving right 25 +/- feet; however, since the 1977 FA some gnarly pine trees have grown up here so the recommended access is to rap down with 2 ropes from the 1/4" bolt (backed up, of course !!!) located 40-50 ft to climber's right (viewer's left looking out). Once near the ledge (which is more narrow here than by the bolts) look for a 2-3 ft wide "dike/shallow chimney" of quartz rock.
P1 - Climb up the obvious dike with its quartz holds, (not really as rotten as described in the Handran guide) move slightly left and gain a clean crack / shallow inside corner to the top. 130 ft 5.5 - 5.6
LocationAbout 30-35 ft climber's right of "Ringwraith's" double bolt anchor on the mid-height tree ledge.
