Not Lichen This.


Begin climbing at a large depression or recess that forms an overhang at its top, 15 ft above the base. Stem the edges of the recess to pull over the overhang and a slot for gear. Continue up the silvery lichen streaked face on sidepulls and features past two more bolts. Another wide crack/slot offers a large cam placement which leads to a last bolt and the anchors.


Between Route 8 and Route 9. Marked as the 2nd prominent silvery lichen streak to the right. Below the large gap in the clifftop right of the tree.


4 bolts & cams (#1 - #2)

"Not Lichen This" is a mixed route. There are numerous opportunities above the first bolt to place cams/gear, but as with other routes at Saddle Peak the cracks are shallow, so evaluate your gear placements carefully.
