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.
