Description 

Technical, blocky lieback moves a few feet up take you to slightly better hands above. Crux is probably from 3-8 ft up.

Staying left near top keeps you on route and takes you to last bolt; moving right allows you to bail onto Dwarrowdelf to finish (finger sized pro if needed).

Surprised this hasn't been added in; it's obviously frequently TRed, sometimes led.


Location 

On the right side of the Middle Earth Lower Canyon, between Dwarrowdelf and Khazaddum.


Protection 

3 Bolts. Well protected. Bolts at top slightly to right; rap rings over to left. The right bolts seemed better for the TR, but I could be misremembering.

WORST FOOTHOLD EVER! This moth must have been about 2" long, and I very nearly squashed it going for the stem move.  (Maybe you've seen the "worst foothold ever" picture of a giant millipede in the much maligned 2008 Orenszak Gunks climbing guide?)
