Jonathan Lantz encountering the lip on Direct Rout...


A.k.a. Sandpaper Ledge.

Climb the overhanging wall on the far right side of the Amphitheatre. Climb to the sloping (sandpaper) hold in the middle of the face and then straight up. Mantle at the lip and then solo up left on the low angle slab and arĂȘte.

Aerial Shoot dynos from the sandpaper hold to the upper holds - FA Dan Stone, 1979.

Fun route, but it is a skin destroyer.
