  • Description 

    A lot of people think an area as trafficked and as famous as Eldo doesn't have first ascents left, but then a wise, old Eldo climber told me that sometimes all it takes is a fresh pair of eyes and some psych.

    Start up some easy terrain to a boulder outcrop. Move up a very thin crack,and then traverse right a bit. Go straight up on lots of good face holds, and pull a few small bulges up to the arete. Gear is sparse for the last 30 feet, but it's juggy face climbing.


    This is left of the big, obvious dihedral.


    Lots of C3s and up to a #2. 2 0.4s are nice.
