Description 

A good route for those looking to challenge their mental game (P2).

P1- Climb up the nice clean face making a couple interesting moves in the process. Belay at the obvious tree on a large ledge.

P2- Step left and climb up and right to the corner/overhang (and some welcome gear). Climb straight up from here to another overhang which is tricky to surmount (don't skip right). Once up, climb up and left through a balancy and thin face towards a right-facing corner. Holding it together here is paramount! Once you have gear again, climb straight to the GT and belay at a left-facing corner.

P3- Worthwhile?? Traverse out the corner and climb the arete and face. Go up to and climb the overhang with a crack in it.

Location 

On the face just right of Minty.

Protection 

Standard rack to 2"

Third pitch is very worthwhile. Hiding in the lichen are some exciting moves with small tricky pro, then an unlikely top out.
