20' left of Pandora's Blocks
nuts cams to .75 long runners draws 60 meter rope
This route links up good slabs with some of the climbing over broken rock. P1. Do a groove, clip a bolt, climb between a block and a roof, then enjoy some fun stemming above 100' 5.9. P1 anchors are also the last rap for Pandora's Blocks. P2. Step left off the belay do some loose easy climbing past a pin and a bolt. Continue up angling left on cracks/slabs and launch into the roofs and flakes above. Take care to runner this pitch 135' 5.11-. P3. Step left off the belay do some friction moves and head back right shooting for the weakness in the roof. Pull the overlap and do friction and crystals straight up the middle of the slab 65' 5.11- Rap the route on P3 P2 and an alternate set of anchors below P2.

A great find, gentlemen--quality stone, super-fun moves and imaginative slab-work. What a fine addition to the southside! S
