BETA PHOTO: LOS Direct photo topo


LOS Direct is a fantastic pitch for the grade, and a bit easier than the original line.

Shares the first three bolts of The Scythe, then break out right following hard to see holds, and pumpy 5.10 climbing up a sweeping bronze swath of stone.

At the end of the bronze shields section is an semi chossy alcove feature. Stem your way up to a distinct notch at the top of the alcove.

At the notch roof, you will come across a bolt with a chain just over the lip. Clip the chain with a draw, and mantle onto some rather big jugs using the great arête to the left 5.10-. Gingerly work up the slab and left arête with rad holds and two more bolts to a two bolt anchor over the top of a giant runnel.


Direct finish of Lucky Old Sun.


11 bolts
2 bolt anchor with 3/8" quick links
13 runners, long draws, standard draws will help your rope flow.
