Impervious Horror is the right face.


This route ascends finger ripping blades all the way up. First move slaps the corner, and then no rest till a good shake prepares for (what else?) blades to the finish. A variation at 11a goes up the arete using a few blades to the right and the punky holes and detached flakes on the corner.


The north facing wall on the right side of the block with Homo Erectus. Start up easy or hard ground to get to the sloping grassy ledge.
