Justin Hausmann on the F.A. of "Sickle."

Description 

Start down low in a crack system. Make a steep traverse up and right by climbing the obvious crack system until it turns pure horizontal and ends. From this point continue straight up onto a blank looking white face with only slopers to aid in your security. This one assures one of a spicy finish.

At the moment, I feel this is the best line at the "Elicit Area!!" It's a must do!!!

Location 

From the first parking lot hike the Sisters Trail (Staying right of "The Brothers Lookout"). Continue just past the "Pachyderm Boulder" where you will began to head LEFT or (WEST) up hill into a slowly tightening gully. The first major boulder that should come into view will be the Marmot Block. Once you have found this boulder all the other currently established lines can be found just a little further up hill to the NORTH/WEST.

Protection 

Pads and spotters.
