Ryan moving on up Lorazepam

Description 

The south facing wall with the split face on Greevers' is done!
LORAZEPAM. is a 5.8 PG-13 with a couple pieces at the horizontal ledge. A BD 1 2 3 or 4 work great! Place at least two to take the R factor out.
It's 5.8 R with no gear. It has 7 (1/2" x 6") bolts with a two bolt anchor with chains on top. Rap off to the northeast. It's accessed best by going around the Needle and useing a fixed line to access the owl cove. The route start to the left side of the little cave on less than vertical ground. The first bolt is easily reached before you start climbing as you are 15' off the main ledge. All bolts are painted reddish brown. Tread lightly! Test everything before you commit to it. It was a super fun route to put up with surprisingly little cleaning need IMHO. You may disagree;)

Location 

Follow the trail that circles the Needle.

Protection 

Bolts and med to bigger gear. A few shoulder length slings would be great!

You'll need at least 5mg of it, and wash it down with a strong drink for good measure......
