The first part of the route is moderate. Once you get to the height of the bottom of the "saddle", it gets steeper and harder. There is a sustained series 5.11 moves as the route moves around the saddle. You better have tough tips because the rock gets rough on top. My 57 meter rope barely reached the ground.


Just to the left of an enormous hole halfway up the cliff that looks like the top a saddle turned 90 degrees. It is on the route map.


10 to 12 bolts + anchors

It your liked Saddle Up, you'll love Pencil Dick. Harder, more sustained and a very tricky crux way up high on the route.
