Thoughtful moves on steep slab. If only this were longer - (though several other routes can be Top-Roped from same or nearby top anchor).

Up the slab to reach the arete a bit below left from its top.

Can reach the bottom of this route by starting at right end of Tower Wall (Sunny Picnics area).
From here, easiest is to climb the Access Scramble route.

More interesing and difficult is to climb from Sunny Picnics the Manticore Dihedral route (or perhaps Picnics Arete or Picnics Dihedral route), then continue up Manticore Upper Arete or Picnics Dihedral to base of Enclosure area.

. (Sigrun in Norse mythology was a heroine reborn as a valkyrie. Key role of a valkyrie in the battle stories was to execute choices for Valhalla).

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2015. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).


At lower left (west) side of Enclosure base, about eight to ten feet right of the arete at the east edge of upper Tower Wall (Manticore Upper Arete).

Top-Rope: Could construct trad anchor for Top-Roping near top of the east end of Tower Wall (near top of Manticore Upper Arete route).

Protection for trad Leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
