Difficult vertical start (clipping 3rd bolt)is followed by 2 full pitches of traversing.
- P1 5.11a is also P1 of Towering Inferno (5.11b). The traverse is sufficiently protected but you sure won't want to fall.
- P2 5.10d is almost as good but a chossy section and a less obvious line make it deserving of less stars in the Marty Lewis guide book. Reaching the anchors might be the heady crux.
- P3 5.10c heads up
(more details on bolts and distance coming soon. just getting it on here for now).
Start at the right of the roof and belay from a nice bench.
Rappel down from P1, P2, or double rappel from P3.

1st pitch is shared with towering inferno which was a 4 star classic climb. 2nd pitch 10d got really chossy half way through and difficult to get to anchors. Bolts scattered up and down after half way with flakes and holds falling off. Good lead for the brave, but just as scary following. Would be classic if it was cleaned up.
