  • Description 

    Start up the obvious dihedral around to the right from Koran. Excellent cracks up vertical rock to a cruxy "hump" that protects well and has stymied many a would-be ascensionist. Pull the crux to a small ledge and then finish in a flaring dihedral with (if I remember correctly) a fixed pin. Belay from the ledge on top of Mecca, but beware rope drag.

    Protection 

    Thin TCU's to hand sized. Nuts and TCU's for the anchor.

    Attempted onsight. Place good gear below roof. I peeled trying to get over the roof, and I'll have to go give it another try for a clean lead and a real tick-mark. Caught some airtime, but lowered down and restarted it, finishing the route.
