Last day climbing, first send for this route.


This route starts out just right of the right-hand bottom trees and has a covering of crispy lichen (hence the name), so you need cleaning gear to make the most of this. Once you get above the trees a bit, the growth almost disappears. I love the route because its a nice steady challenge the whole way up and offers a few different options to send after the halfway point. You could make this a 5.10c if you want by simply choosing a slightly different line.


All the way to the right side of the base area around the back of the clump of trees.


No fixed gear as of this post, and very little pro. Your best to TR.
