Description:

All-time classic. Doesn't get climbed that often so expect lichen and bird crap in places. P1) Do the T2 roof start, but bust left along an undercling until you can face climb up to a ledge (11a, mild R). P2) bird crap stemming up to the upper ramp (8+, better than it sounds). P3) The Pitch. Great history here. Follow a tricky ramp (10) to a small roof. Place good gear then fire through the next 15 feet to the rotten band (11a R). Follow rotten band up and left to a belay. The Lene's Dream variation continues straight up from the 11a face to link into the Naked Edge. P4) Nondescript climbing up to a belay below a roof. P5) Pull the roof (10+) and continue to the top.

5 out of 5 stars Not a big runout

I fully expected to take the 30+ foot fall after watching Scary Faces, but the crux turned out to be the first pitch! Don't be scared to try it and enjoy the route.
