The right-side corner system of the "Lichen Fun Slide" which continues all the way to the top in one glorious pitch. The start is on a tricky finger-crack, which peters out quickly to become 10m of face climbing on good licheny holds, passing an attractive bulge on the right. By-passing the bulge entirely, continue up into a clean corner gaining a spacious ledge. Stick to the right side of the ledge and continue up, surmounting the final headwall with awkward moves on good, clean rock. After these awkward moves you will be on a nice shadowy ledge, where the side-walls narrow down to form a tunnel-like chute. Chimney up and climb left to reach the anchors of Meanderthon, or follow the tunnel to reach the summit ridge.
The Lichen Fun Slide is a narrow 10' wide slab bordered by two corner systems. It is immediately to the right of Meanderthon or east from Width of Reason. It currently is covered with lots of healthy green lichen.
This route protects well, but your options are not varied (a variety of tri-cams will increase your options). Place protection at every possibility, because it is likely to be the only protection for 10-20 ft. The shallow corner past the bulge takes a #1 Camalot (or similar), and a large piece is good for the upper headwall moves. Long runners are a must if you want to avoid serious rope-drag. Use Meanderthon's anchors for the descent.
