Looks like an easy cruise but it's thin in spots and the exposure keeps it interesting. Great views and a very aesthetic location.  


On Elf's Ear Spire, which looks like its name suggests. Furthest spire to right in Mordor. The Black Gate is the line of bolts up the slabby face to top.


5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.
