120' of thin-face goodness on that rock. Go on, dr...

The obvious line of bolts up the cool green licheny face.

A great face climb in cool position. The crux comes at the second or third bolt (sorry it was a couple months ago) and involves some hard crimping with not much for feet. Then solid 5.10 face climbing to a casual finish at a two bolt anchor.

The anchor needs a little help. Chains would be good, there was a lot of tat up there.


Bring gear for the initial horizontal, medium cams will suffice, then 6 (or was it 7?) bolts to a two bolt anchor.

A 70 meter rope worked for us . . . with the stretch. Tie a knot in the ends if you have doubts. A truly cool route that has well protected crux moves.

Amazing not to be missed route. Be sure to have your thin edging skills intact. The start takes a #4 camalot followed by a bolt followed by a medium cam in the 1-2 inch range (a nest of cams is possible in the undercling crack). After a few more moves it gets very thin and balancy. A 70 meter rope makes it to the ground exactly with stretch.

A 60 M line raps clean to the platform out right.
