Narsil starts from the upper ledge about 30 feet above the start ledge for Anduril. Thin cams plus a belay bolt provide the anchor. Climb right, then follow bolts and thin cracks up a sustained face to the crux moves past the last bolt to gain the roof with a fixed nut, and a final pumpy lieback past the roof to easy terrain and the anchor. The FA team intends to continue the route higher. Several pro bolts are currently with small custom hangers. Rap with a single 60m rope.
