Description:

This climb will take every bit of a 60 meter rope. Hike along the bench on the west side of face to the south of Sharp N Shady (~150-200 meters). Look for a long face climb with plenty of lichen. Set up belay station next to a good size crack that connects to a deep crack system just wide enough for a person to climb through. This is a long route but with lots of deep jugs. Edges of jugs are very sharp and in one area there are lots of 3 finger pockets with sharp edges that could be dangerous if you took a fall on one. The crux is the last 10 feet to the top. Use a huge horn that you can't miss to finish it. Limestone. Lichen makes the climb dirty suggest wearing glasses.

Descent Options:

There are two routes side by side. Try the route to the right of Hiken Lichen that runs along the rib.
