All the way at the end!

Description 

Move up the 2nd crack from the right, following it left and up to crack and right facing flake. Head up small slab to top out.

Please note that to the right of this is a small crack that ends at a tree. That is an alternative start to Fafnir. It's too short to be it's own climb and the top of the tree is usually chocked with posion ivy. Like crazy amounts of poison ivy. You've been warned.

Location 

Far right of the Basilisk wall. Pretty much the end.

Protection 

Gear anchor at top. I've usually used a #3 in far left upper crack with a double length sling extending it. I then used a #2 C4, #4 nut and another piece (#1C4 or #1C3) and connect them all with a long cordelette. Comment if you find a better anchor set up.

A couple of nice moves. 5.7G. As far as an anchor, I equalized 2 trees with a long static rope.
