Very long crack system in the middle of the gully. Tricky and powerful right off the ground. Work the flaring cracks up right past a new bolt then continue up easier ground. All hardware replaced 6/7/15 by BHCC.


First crack system downhill from Erebor. Next crack uphill from Glamdring. Look for bolt between two cracks at about 25' high. Double rope rap!


Double rack to #4
One bolt
Bolted anchor w/ chain
