Description

Make your way past the first overhang to the overhanging upper face with the dual cracks. Don't be surprised how good the left pocket is (not).

Location

The guides talk about 5.8 and 5.9 crack lines inside the corridor as an alternative to the (dubious) easy stem route between the walls. This wall is just to the right of the 5.9 crack in the east corridor.

Protection

TR only. You would not want to pitch off the upper face inside this micro canyon.

Nice Chris. Do only old men lead hard at DL now? 5 days ago

Despite Erol's (RIP) admonition in the route description, the route actually protects ok with small gear. Still best not to blow it high in the gap. 5 days ago
