  • Description 

    What a fine line, and perhaps one of the earliest routes at LWB. Start 10 feet to the right of "Tea in the Sahara" at a thin crack. Follow this until you reach the right side of the roof (same roof as the one for "Tea..."), pull this, then move slightly left into the upper left-facing corner system.

    The route ends at a two-bolt anchor on a nice, spacious ledge. Walk off is to the climber's right, or rap with two 60 meter ropes.


    10 feet to the right of "Tea in the Sahara".


    A standard rack, emphasizing finger-size pieces.

    Really fun route, we topped it but it looks protectable. First section is straight foward. Gaining the roof is fun and offers good feet to get up and over. Certainly worth doing if you are here.

    It says two 60m are required, this isn't true. It is a 90' climb, not 130'. You can rap from the bolts with one right to the ground.
