Description 

Time to Geshido!!!
A gnarly, cryptic crux. The first half leads out the 30 foot ceiling in a hanging, horizontal dihedral that has both crimps and jams hidden in it's dark corners. Stepping off the ground can be the crux, depending on your height. If your lucky, a couple blocks will be there to aid in grabbing the starting holds.

Pull through the ceiling, and clip one more fixed draw. Lower from here, for a sport climbing experience, or continue on to the top of the wall(5.9R, mixed)on fun, varied and steep terrain. A set of anchors is at the lip. Don't forget to look out at the valley and the Throne.

Location 

on the far north end of VOB, almost at the end of the prominent cave roof. The amazing roof crack "Harvester of Sorrow" is thirty feet to the left.

Protection 

First half of the route is protected by fixed draws(chains, biners). The second half of the route has one bolt, then anchors. Bring a small rack.
