Description 

This climb is really only done for its first pitch. The first pitch is usually toproped due to the first protection being a bolt around 25 feet off the ground. This pitch is start off at 5.9 slab and moves into the 5.8 realm as you move up. The following pitches are runout, covered in lichen/vegetation, and have some holds that will break off.

Location 

Start right on C.S. Concerto and stay in the right system, going to the unprotected face for the upper pitches.

Protection 

A draw and gear to about 1.5", but the whole thing is pretty runout and thin so don't plan on placing a lot.

Fun climb with a little excitement getting to the first bolt, but its over easy ground! The gear gets better as you get higher. Bring small cams for protection. Have fun be safe!
