Description:

Start in the center of the Necromancer Wall between two crack climbs at a large flake with a crack on the right hand side. Climb the incredible varnished face, wandering about to find good gear when needed near the harder moves. Pull past the first roof to the chains. One of the nicer single pitch 5.9 trad face climbs at Red Rock. -- An easier second pitch is possible. Walk off to the climbers left.

5 out of 5 stars Exciting Face and Roof

Really fun face moves over small nuts with a great roof pull to cap it off.

5 out of 5 stars Sensuous Mortician

Wicked pitch, I really liked it. This needs to be the clinic pitch at Red Rocks when teaching trad leading. Pro quite tough to find, but it is all there. Long and sustained pitch, crack changing to face, pulling a small roof problem at the end. We did Fold Out first and I watched this dude really struggle. The 2nd pitch of Fold Out goes right over the route. He finally made it and I gave him some words of encouragement, I have been there myself. I got on it after and just thoroughly enjoyed myself. Definitely the best pitch on Necromancer, I did them all on the same day.
