|Wall of the Goddess
Approach: Hike up around the right side of the Wall of the Dead to the upper tier of Avalon. Traverse left on a trail below the routes Jaguar and Black Tiger. After about 100 yards, you'll see a 35-foot-high wall on the right with two 2-bolt anchors, and several cracks lacing the wall. This is the Wall of the Goddess.
Yoni is the crack on the left, heading up to the left 2-bolt anchor.
Climb the crack and step left to the anchor. I used Aliens and Camalots to #2 for pro.
Rossiter calls this 5.9 on his website, but it seemed easier.
Finger-to-hand-sized pro. 2-bolt anchor at the top.

Aaahhh...leave it to that badass Rossiter to name a climb properly. I like it. Elixer amrita. Here's to daydreaming about the source, and the goal...

This is a nice crack, but it is nowhere near 5.8! The bolted anchor is also exceptionally lame.

I'm new to crack and lead climbing and I got up this thing no problem. Either I'm getting better, was having a good day, or this thing is only 5.6 or thereabouts. Great hand crack though! Wish it was longer! I protected it with two larger (#12/13) BD stoppers and a #2 (yellow) Camalot only.

This route is mostly a 5.6. There may be one 5.7 move at the bottom, but that is it. The route is fun though. Too bad it is so short.
