Description

Lankin Dome; Direct South Buttress, 1st a short 5.5 right facing corner to bolt anchor. A 5.6 pitch of run out slab. A 5.8 pitch up face crystals on right side of black water groove. Another 5.5 slab/face pitch with hard to find anchors and a last pitch with a 5.6 option up and left or a direct 5.9 crack above the belay. Summit, water filled pot holes, classic.

Location

Directly up the South Buttress. Look for small right facing corner to start and a short but blackest of 3 water grooves at 1/2 height.

Protection

Mostly bolted face so a very light rack, maybe 3-4 small to medium cams and quickdraws and locking biners. Bolted belays, except for summit.

I do believe that the direct variation to the final pitch is 5.9 slab (protected well enough) and not a 5.9 crack.

Excellent route. Dec 14, 2015
Excellent route with moments of run out that threaten to make you crap your pants - just keep climbing. Oct 28, 2016

This route is a must do.. I have spent the last 20+ years climbing throughout the US and I can tell you for sure this is truly classic... Every belay has a good stance, the rock is clean, pro where you need it. The direct 5.10 finish (per the 2016 Wyoming Guide) is the way to go.. Super fun. Sep 10, 2018
