This route follows the first four pitches of The Consolation, but instead of joining either Who-dunit or The Long Climb it continues up a flaring crack and over a roof.
Pitch 1-4: The Consolation, belay at a sloping ledge with a good sized tree.
Pitch 5: At the right end of the ledge climb up a short crack, then follow a crack with broken ledges up and left to the bottom of a slightly flaring crack. You will also be able to see the roof. Belay here.
Pitch 6: Climb the crack and the roof and belay above the roof.
Pitch 7: Easier climbing to the top.


This route follows the crack between Who-dunit and The Long Climb to the top.


small to 3 inches, standard rack


Did this in 4 pitches with a 70m, maybe simuled 15ft on the last pitch. Basically go straight up through regular Consolation then just slightly angle left, then back right to a short deep crack. Just maybe 5.9+ not in the 10s I think. Aug 7, 2016

Great finish to the consolation. The "belay at the sloping ledge" is the same sloping ledge where The Consolation joins Whodunit. Belay at the right side of this ledge for the direct finish. Jul 27, 2016
