BETA PHOTO: The crux's zigzag line


Climb up the corner to the ceiling above the first pitch of Achilles's Heel (5-7) then leave by going left onto a sloping ledge. Traverse over to its left side to enter an inclining head wall. Go up a series of very steep switchbacks (crux). Extremely tiresome because difficult protection placements due to the angles necessary to having good pro. Almost entirely wire stoppers and often blind placements with long slings to minimize rope drag. All removable pro on this climb. Finish is onto another head wall left. All rock in this area looks like it should fall down. Appearances can be deceiving during Two. The perception then was directly right and up is a pile of stacked rocks. Staying left of that we ended at the top of the Muir Buttress. 2 bolts later a belay and then Jim and I rappelled to the ground.


The giant ceiling above the first pitch of Achilles's Heel. Right of Muir Buttress. Climb unprotected slabs to base of Achilles's Heel


Trad. Rack with lots of small to medium stoppers. 2 bolt rappel station.
