Immediately left of Darla and on the adjacent buttress, FYC climbs up steep terrain on a system of near perfect edges. The climbing is continuous and fairly relentless for the grade. It seemed as though every move was close to 5.11 and the cruxes start coming at you right off the ground. FYC comes highly recommended for the good stone, continuity, and relentless evolution of sequences.
Half a dozen draws and a rope.

Good climbing with a few quick rests. It is tricky and friable at the upper crux.

Great route! DO IT! DO IT! Couple of things to be aware of, the flake just past the 6th bolt feels like it's ready to go at any moment, try to work out to the right and avoid it (or bring yer glue!) Also, the anchors are open shuts so don't go wandering too far above it, although it's easier to clip when they are about waist level (at least for me!)

This is one of the best routes in Penitente at the grade! Long route with sustained climbing with a wide variety of moves. It's worth the walk to the Rock Garden. Do it!

This is Choss. This isn't worth glueing, and this DEFINITELY isn't Penitente or Rock Garden's best. I can name 4 of the same grade that are better. AVOID.
