Elsie's Nose is the classic line that follows an incipient crack just right of the Evans Bolt Ladder. Start off a pointy stone, with difficulty, layback seam with poor feet, and white, quartz knob, to a moist, shallow, pocket, with the addition of a layback edge crux the right foot onto the quartz knob. Then maintain interest at a lower standard to the top. Sit start is dope; 5.12a ***
Don't forget to paste your left foot under the mini roof!
Also known as Schmoe's Nose, etc et al.
Top rope. Deciduous trees provide the anchor. Maybe padding for the anchor rope. Nice angle for micro-traxioning, but low crux. Free soloed on routine by the late Peter Absolon. Even free soloed by Brr Matt Lavender. (On my circuits I found it sketchy-er than the Sloth, but not as hard as the Dream (direct in MP))
