So far, this is a work in progress. The first pitch starts way left in a short steep diheddral and trends up and right passing thin pro and a bolt to the main dihedral. The crux may be after the bolt, you pass a bulge and use 2 med tri-cams til you gain a finger-sized undercling (visible from the ground). Build an anchor and the second pitch goes up a crack in the main dihedral to a bolted anchor at a stance right of the crack. We were going left in the dihedral but it turns out to be a roof that blanks out. We bailed and will return to finish around to the right.


On the west side of Kor Wall, just around the corner, walk 100yds to an overhanging dihedral(fingers) in a corner and climb up and right to reach the main dihedral. Pitch one anchor with natural pro at the start of main dihedral. Pitch two anchor is two bolts that get you to the ground with double 60m ropes.


Thin to large nuts, Lowe tri-cams, couple med hexes, doubles from small aliens to #1 camalot, single #2,3 camalot; one protection bolt.

No, we haven't finished it yet. Too many things on the to-do list. We will return soon to finish it though and update the routes DB. Care to help??? You can still do the first 2 pitches and rap off if you want.

Nope. We always intended a return but we haven't yet. The finish goes easier right but we wanted the steep corners on the left. It is a very difficult start though.
