That Fearful Vortex

Type: 
Rock
Description: 
A nod to Dave Vass. Rap down from top of P1 of Charybdis, down the arete the wrap into zawn. Steep! Clip rope through 1-2 bolts on way down to keep in by the wall, and don't forget knots and backup prussick. The zawn is a rush. With a little swell running, the whitewater in the end of the zawn can tower above the belay ledge.
