|West Ridge - part A - Verschneidung to base
A so-so climb, but is more interesting than scrambling up to the 'Morning Thunder' area and in that respect is worth doing. The lead is incredibly steep for the grade, but good holds keep it moderate.
This route is very low on the West Ridge, above Mineral Maze and Water Line, but down below the scrambling approach for Morning Thunder and the Amphitheatre. You will recognize this as a left-leaning and overhanging, right-facing corner with some flakes stuffed in it. It goes from a stating point on a slab to a tree or gear, above.
A standard light rack of cams and nuts.
