Good climbing up cracks to the left of the yucca plant that's about 60 feet up.


The left-most route at Styx. Shown as route #1 on the Styx area route topo


small to medium cams and nuts to a 2-bolt anchor. Two 50m ropes are needed for rappel.

If you don't want to trail a 2nd rope: climb with a 70m rope; or, with a single 50 or 60m rope, do a short rappel to the Lethe anchors first, then a 2nd rappel down from there.

FA by Karl Kiser and Tom Wezwick. We wanted to use this line to go higher but there would need to be a lot of cleaning.
