Description 

Climb corner all the way to the top, avoid reaching too far right and using Brinton's crack.

Location 

The guidebook lists this route between Stool Pidgeon and Brinton's crack. Obvious corner.

Protection 

I don't believe there is any "on-route" protection.

Wow, this climb seemed pretty sandbagged. There are many 10's and even an 11 or two that seem easier to me than this climb. Broke a side pull crimp off on the lower 3rd. Now it might be even harder.

Starting this climb on the arete is a V2 boulder problem. Starting further to the left, as on Stool Pigeon, makes this 10a.

For lack of better information, we tried various version of this route. If, after the V2 start, you tend to stay on or a bit right of the arete, it seem just a little tougher than Brinton's Direct, maybe a 5.9+. If you tend to stay a bit left on the arete, there's a move about 15ft from the top (just left around the corner from the big undergrip flake on Brinton's Direct) that tripped up 3 of us, and we think we're up to your average 5.10a. Anyone have a better idea of the "official" route?
