Climb right side of Eye either directly or by angling into eye part way from thin left leaning seam (easier though runout .8). from belay atop eye move up and then left on ledge to rap anchors and belay. Move off right end of ledge and up into right facing system that thins to a hand/finger crack and belay in circular depression.

Had to yard through the crux...but figured it out as I did....wish I had had more time to work on it but the old Alpine adage applied....try it twice then pull through....
Fun route... the Eye of Mordor is HARD! And wet...

Good route although not quite as clean a line as I was hoping. The 5.11a crus is out of character with the rest of the climb which checks in around .9+ or .10-. The Eye of Mordor pitch is the most most sustained and demanding.
