Description:

Not easy to get to, this is a short but fun and crimpy sport route. From Knob Wall, go left around the corner as if you were going into the Whipping Post corridor, but instead head for where that corridor dead ends. Scramble over boulders and trees to work your way to the back wall of Whipping Post. Look for the bolts of Lichen This on your left. Also referred to as "Lichenness."

4 out of 5 stars Lichenness bolts removed

Someome has cut off the bolts on Lichenness, including the anchors. The cuts were fresh as of this posting. Sad to see a Sandrock classic cut off. I wish I would have caught them in the act.
