Comments: Not very often a broken hold makes a better one but this time it did - there's a big foothold at the crux rounding the corner on the right - makes things a bit easier, but still 5.9.

Comments: When someone says "Central Sierra" I must confess I think of the region of the High Sierra between the Palisades and Kearsarge Pass. Is there another name we can give it? Perhaps I'm wrong.

Comments: Saw Yair do this as a two-handed dyno from the undercling to the top - this was certainly the FA without the crimps, and I'm led to believe that it was the overall FA.

Comments: Descent: follow ridge down to lowest point, then go down the scree to the right of the slabs as shown in this picture (but will be skier's left looking down from the notch). This will take you down into the trees.
