Description 

From the first belay on Mordor look up and left the slightly overhung wall and you'll see a rivet and two old bolts heading up about thirty feet to a small overlap. Start hooking off the anchor clipping the the gear as you go. I think one of the bolts may be newer, but the rivet is a time bomb. From the last bolt high step into the feature, crux, and follow the feature left into grand finale's second pitch after the pendulum.


Location 

Top of the first pitch of Mordor.


Protection 

Rivet hanger, #1 & #2 blades, thin gear, draws.
