DescriptionChallenging moves which are not necessarily fun. Good choice if want to work on mantle technique (or crimps on horizontal edges).
Up to left side of rock protruding from obvious horizontal break. Get foot up onto protrusion, then over the bulge, using the arete on its right side.
. . . (Harder if do not use arete, easier if touch foot into gully on right side of arete).
Next a mantle onto a slopy ledge, which likely will feel awkward the first time.
. . . (but on top-rope could repeat it, get more toward "elegant").
name? From the Kalevala of Finland.
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 - (and if possible, behind a large tree).
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
LocationFace between vertical crack and the obvious gully / wide crack in the middle of this sector which goes up to an overhang at its top right. Below from between a pancake and a bit protrusion in the obvious horizontal break about 20 feet up.
