  • Description 

    Along the shore the cloud waves break,
    The twin suns sink behind the lake,
    The shadows lengthen
    In Carcosa.

    Strange is the night where black stars rise,
    And strange moons circle through the skies,
    But stranger still is
    Lost Carcosa.

    Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
    Where flap the tatters of the King,
    Must die unheard in
    Dim Carcosa.

    Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
    Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
    Shall dry and die in
    Lost Carcosa.

    Location 

    Start crossed on two good edges at ~chest height, way down and right in the yawning pit just around the corner from Panzotopanzonite. Travel up and left to engage a heady crux and topout.

    Protection 

    You can do a lot with a little as far as pads go. Toprope rehearsal and roped spotter recommended for the crux. It would be a really bad idea to fall off the end of the crux or the easy but delicate topout.
