Open Sesame – 5.8 (trad)


''The highlight of this route is the second pitch’s dihedral. Walking off via the steep, direct approach trail is best, but you can rappel from any anchor with a 60m rope. P1.) Climb up past a bolt (shared start with The Gatekeeper) and a short way up the dihedral, looking for the first chance to step out left around the corner. Finger traverse left and step across a groove to a short crack and a nice belay by the curved tree. 5.7 P2.) An awesome hands/fingers corner to the forested terrace. 5.8 P3.) Move the belay up a short rock step to the base of the next wall and climb the fun bolted arete to reach the main crag directly below “Half Lotus”. 5.8 S.R. to 3.5”

    A great new addition to the shannon falls area. Combined with cragging at shannon springs it makes a fun day of varied crack climbing. P2 was stellar! Nice position and view on P3.
