BETA PHOTO: Mike Snyder climbing A Hint of Ollorosso .12d on t...


climb up a slanting dihedral and surmount a bell shaped lip. See any holds? I didn't either for a long time. I enlisted the help of a friend and we found a solution. Get to the the protruding slopey horn and follow the arcing seam up and right. (Cruxy!) Work a slopey fold back to the left and top out, twice to reach the chains. A short and stout route, as with most of the harder lines, this one is a bit of a puzzler.


To the left of Auchentoshen. Scramble up the hillside 25 feet or so to find a slanted edge that makes a nice shelf to tie in and change your shoes. For now, the belay stance is loose and rocky/dirt.
