Climb the corner. Pass the pine tree and pull the bulge to the top.

The book rates it at 5.5. It's every bit as difficult as Front C so I'd put it at 5.6. Definitely a fun little route worth doing if you're there. Take a camera up with you as the top of the climb affords one of the best views of the South Peak East Face.


This is the large right-facing corner on the left end of the ledge atop Lichen or Leave It and Helter Skelter.


Standard trad rack. Rap/belay anchor at the top of Lichening Bolt.

Built a 3 piece at the top of Lichen or Leave it so we could run this too. decent short Seneca 6 with an uncomfortable hanging belay
