Description

A beast of a route from start to finish.

Start to the right of Akmun-Rah and to the left of Gifts under the crack that has an offwidth 2/3 of the way up. Start up a slab that steepens into a flake. The terrain will then become vertical briefly before rearing back into a huge, rounded overhang. Motor through some powerful, slopey laybacks and thrust your way into the offwidth. Grovel in the OW with some knee bars (guess which side in... it helps) for a few meters before you can finally regain some decent jams into a slightly overhung block feature. The chains will be just above this block feature.

Location

Around the small buttress to the right of Akmun-Rah and to the left and around the arete from Gifts

I recommend climbing past the intial anchor through the 20 meter extension (5.10) to make for a full value 45 meter pitch. The extension tops out on a beautiful ledge.

Also, a #6 is not needed for the climb, save the weight on the long approach. Nov 10, 2015
