Three fools photo. #17 in Bloom 2nd ed. Seems this route has been confused with the: "Unnamed 5.10 (Bloom Route 12) - popular hands corner" Which is #15 in the Bloom 2nd edition. Three fools is further right. <br /> <br />This photo credited to Buster Jesik was copied from that other route listing, but I believe belongs here  Cruising Nagasaki  Near the top of the chill chimneying on Nagasaki. Photo by Vinnie  The yellow line is Revely-Hunter, the blue is Briggs' variation. These routes start in the corner to the right of the Rincon P2 corner in this pic. Revely-Hunter steps left onto arete, then face, then up left again around roof, then crack to sloping ledge and the Rincon P2 anchor.  Briggs variation continues up the corner and traverses left at the angled ledge to the anchor. <br /> <br />Photo credit: Bryson Slothower.  Ghost Kitchen kalymnos
