An unknown climber ascends Local Motion in Archang...


This route isn't as easy as it looks, nor as easy as the old hand-drawn guides say it is, and the runout makes it not much of a beginner-friendly lead. The crux is on a bulge near the top. Walk off, or rap with two ropes.


Ascends the obvious slab where the trail reaches the base of the monolith. Head up the right side of the slab following the widely spaced bolt line.


6 bolts and an optional red alien.
Two bolt anchor.

Be careful on this one there was a pretty serious 35 foot fall on this route.
