The last two pitches are seldom climbed.
80 ft (5.9) Perfect, sustained liebacking up the consistent flake to the 2-bolt top anchor shared with 'Opus 7'.
120 ft? Follow the chimney up left to a corner leading to a belay stance.
120 ft? Follow the corner up onto exposed runout face climbing up the Knobby Wall protected only by a couple of bolts.
- If continuing past the first pitch, skip the bolted top anchor and build an anchor up in the chimney for a more comfortable belay stance.
The left side of the Knobbly Wall is 5.8R. The right side of the Knobbly Wall is 5.7 and also runout.
Pro: 0.5" to 4" with doubles in the larger sizes.
