Not My Lichen shares an anchor with My Lichen. To ...


This is climb #16 in the LAM on-line guide, although it appears there is a typo or some confusion in that guide. To wit: in the description of climb #15 (My Lichen, which is the face just to the left), a 5.7 crack is mentioned, which has to be the same crack as climb #16 (Not My Lichen). However, the guide rates #16 at 5.9, which appears to be an incorrect rating, probably just a typo.

A nice easy crack in the back of a dihedral on the Lichen Wall. A great beginner trad lead, and maybe a little soft for a White Rock 5.7.


One of the first faces you encounter as you walk north from the Class 2 downclimb. Watch the dead cholla near the base if you're throwing down a toprope.


Eats up a rack of cams to #4 camalot. Set a gear anchor on top or use the two-bolt anchor.
