Description

("Old Fox") Another set of nice cracks in the Gandalf wall provides clean, low-stakes climbing.

P1) 5.9 45M. Start left of the often black, seeping slabs near the middle of the wall. Layback or jam up a nice left-facing corner, until a hornizontal crack leads you left over a small overlap. Continue up this corner system until another small curve left at a bulge, up the slab to a very short corner, and then step left to a nice belay stance. The guidebook has this at 5.10, but that felt generous.

P2) 5.10a 60. Continue up the groove above the belay into a grassy ramp. Climb a short crack that cleaves the face on the right, and then make your way up a thin crack in the headwall above. Belay at the top.

Descent: walk off to the left.

Location

Locate two parallel left-facing corners above an area just left of a black, perhaps seepy slab.
