Logan on Komodo

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


This climbs the left facing dihedral right of the orange wall. During the FA, a light breeze was blowing straight up the corner and every time I put my hand in the crack, flakes of lichen the size of Komodo Dragon scales were liberated and then elevated by the breeze. The flakes of lichen swirled around my head and thoughts of Indonesia swirled around inside. The route has cleaned up a bit and the rock is excellent.


Start in a short chimney and move through a ramp with a bush(pass bush on the right) and get into the corner proper then stem your way up to the ledge above(Dragan Ledge).


It has been done with a single rack to three. I know somebody that likes a #4 up there. Chain anchors found on the ledge(Dragan Ledge) to the left.

The movement on this route is fantastic. It's also filthy in a few spots. Don't let the first 40 feet of the route dull your enthusiasm, this thing finishes strong. I was happy to have a double rack. Definitely a few suspect chunks of rock in/around the crack. Pull gently.
