Description

Marking the transition between the Iron Wall and Memorial Wall is a unique hollow layer of cinder cobbles near the rim. While much of this layer is dirty, rotten, and covered in lichen, the Sindarete is fairly solid, and almost sinfully fun.

You climb both sides of a steep arete with incredible position and sustained movement in a long pitch. The beginning is a bit off balance and sequential. The face crux near the middle may be reachy but on great holds. After some more exposed arete moves, difficulties gradually decrease as does the rock quality.

Eventually, you leave the arete to venture across the cinder knobs (maybe only 5.7, but tread lightly!) and make a beeline up to a short moderate crack. Recommended to top out on jugs over the final bulge above the horizontal crack.

Location

about 50' east of Hobel Memorial. Set rap line into the gulley just east of the top-out. Belay on a comfortable ledge below the hanging 'South American Flake'.

Protection

12 bolts with a few cams for the top, a #.75 and #1 C4. Belay is 1 bolt and small crack to supplement.

Great line and great addition to the south side Darren. Unique. I liked having a yellow totem between the bolts. Definitely on the 11 side of 10 Sep 21, 2015
