BETA PHOTO: Nechtanc sector: center + right A. Tree of Infinit...

Description 

Over the right end of the roof, then diagonal left up ramp to the arching R-facing corner sharp-angled. Up that to its top, then step up right into a wide open book / dihedral with a right-trending crack. Up the crack to the top.

Variation: After pulling the roof, step right and up the left side of a pillar - (less interesting climbing than the main route, though it keeps it separate from the "Will to Power" route. But what's the point of a "Sickle" route which skips the main sickle?)

warning: Loose rock is still a concern here. Belayer or other members of party should not stand anywhere near underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location 

Below the right end of a two-foot roof about nine feet off the ground, with a left-trending slab above it that leads to an arching R-facting corner sharp-angled -- the sickle.

For ideas how to set up Top-Rope, see Description of this Nechtanc sector.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
