Killer layback.


This is a new line on the far West (right) side. 4 bolts to a 2-ring anchor. The route begins in a crack below the bolt and works through 2 roofs to a steep fac finish. A variety of techniques are helpful, from laybacks to Stein pulls and some fancy footwork. This is short but powerful, it's sure to deliver a quality pump.


This is the second route in from the arete/corner on the west (right) edge of the Fang Amphitheater.


4 bolts (3 fixed draws, please leave the biners) to a 2-ring anchor.

I just did this one. It's basically a bolted dry-tooling boulder problem. Very nice, takes about 3-4 minutes.
