The crux for me was on the 3rd pitch in a sallow left facing corner rock's a little funky for pro there, but there's a pin not to far below. Excellent slab climbing. Thanks to Greg Barnes for all the hard work on this and all the other great routes he's put up!!!!!
left of the big arch about 100' there's a splitter kinda wide crack 3" up to a ledge. that's the start. Can't miss the route from there.
Bolts/Cams. bring lot's of draws.

There were no pins on the 3rd pitch at July 2008. Small aliens or tcu's worked fine here. A couple medium 2-3" cams for the end of the 3rd pitch are helpful after the corner/roof. Recommend the first two pitches be combined. Rappel the route with 3 double rope raps.

Great route that's got great pro for T-Meadows. I give it a 5.10a rating. Some beta for the 4th pitch: follow the many bolts (in a sea of orange knobs) until they seemingly run out and you can't figure out where the next one is...go way up and right and keep you eyes peeled. The first acentionists should have gone straight up to the last stance at the current belay on pitch 4 instead of wandering out to the left..just me and my partner's opinion.
