Description 

Carchost lies just west of the Guardian route and rock formation. Together with its counterpart Narchost, they were known as The Towers of the Teeth and flanked the Black Gate of Mordor, otherwise known as the Morannon.

Getting There 

Hike past the Outer Outlet toward Riddle. Just before Riddle, take the obvious trail uphill to the left, passing the routes Waste Knot, Master of Rack, and Morannon. Carchost is the rib of rock just past The Guardian.

Starts on the North corner arête. Work up to the fixed pin and then pull the bulge using good holds to the thin face. It seems like the holds get thinner and thinner the higher you get. Committing and kind of scary. If memory serves me right it felt pretty thin for how it looks from the ground up. anchor on top with great views....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
