So now you have another reason to come to the back side of The Pharaoh. This route is a lot of fun and gets in your face right off the ground. Without the proper set up getting from bolt 2 to 3 is likely to feel very hard, but once you find the trick it's much easier.

Pick your way through the low quartz bands using equal parts balance and power avoiding the grungy crack on the left. You will then find yourself at a nice rest with the second half the route looming above. The legitimate arete climbing is a total hoot.


Immediately left and downhill from Time the Avenger


7 bolts to chains w/ steel biners

Eric, I'll be in touch. Always happy for feedback. Oct 9, 2015
Cool move at the crux. Second bolt should be a foot lower or stick clip a draw to it. I had to do a crazy extra move to clip it as I am 5'6". If Tif can't touch the hanger it is too high! Drill them at your elbow Luke. Upper part is fun but if your tips are tender it is less fun. I have a few more things if you are interested in some constructive criticism Luke. Having said all that it is worth doing because the crux and the upper arete are cool. Oct 9, 2015
