The final pitch, 5.5 crack with an incredible view...

  • Description 

    Lankin Dome; Direct South Buttress, 1st a short 5.5 right facing corner to bolt anchor. A 5.6 pitch of run out slab. A 5.8 pitch up face crystals on right side of black water groove. Another 5.5 slab/face pitch with hard to find anchors and a last pitch with a 5.6 option up and left or a direct 5.9 crack above the belay. Summit, water filled pot holes, classic.


    Directly up the South Buttress. Look for small right facing corner to start and a short but blackest of 3 water grooves at 1/2 height.


    Mostly bolted face so a very light rack, maybe 3-4 small to medium cams and quickdraws and locking biners. Bolted belays, except for summit.

    I do believe that the direct variation to the final pitch is 5.9 slab (protected well enough) and not a 5.9 crack.

    Excellent route.

    Excellent route with moments of run out that threaten to make you crap your pants - just keep climbing.
