Fold Out, 5.8

2nd Pitch- 160’- 5.8/ A fun pitch. Make a neat traverse out left and then up a water streak above a small roof that gives the route an airy feel (directly above Sensuous Mortician). Climb a thin to blank section, thus looking for a bolt in the void of white rock above. It is more to your right as you follow the natural line versus your left. Clip the bolt with a double length runner and continue traversing left until into an easy angled crack. Place gear at will and set up a station wherever comfortable. As I recall there is a fixed station where we stopped and rappelled the route. But you will need Sensuous Mortician’s fixed anchor to make the 2nd rappel. Please don’t do this if somebody is climbing Sensuous Mortician. Just exit the normal Necromancer gully.
