Looking up 2nd pitch.

Description 

Pitch 1 is sort of awkward. The crack is good, the feet not so much. Start up a nice crack and roof then traverse up and right, reaching three bolts before the belay.

Pitch 2 needs no explanation other than a splitter handcrack to committing roof.

Pitch 3: stiff fingers off the belay to a nice, perfect layback on a thin rail. ends on a nice summit with great views of the OV and Whites.

Location 

There's a rap station below to the right (climber's right) that is for a new route. Better this way as ropes can get snagged on the way down the regular route. Bring a 70m!

Protection 

Gear to 3 1/2. Three quick draws for the bolts.

Great route with some really nice cracks! Some awkward moves getting to first anchor, nice jamming to super fun roof on the second, Little slippery at the start of the third pitch, with some nice thin fingers. There was a defined little scratch trail from the parking up to the base, but im curious if its covered up some. Nice views of the valley and there are some other obvious lines that have been done and are worth checking out.
