Description 

This is a good route in a great setting, but I was disappointed that the it didn't break left onto the red rock at the top.

The top pitch is blocky with big, classic features in an open, chimney-like system.

Location 

The start took some time to find, the wall looms large when your standing in front of it. Instead, find the route on the wall at a distance before arriving.

Protection 

I seem to remember thin gear at the beginning, but it gets better higher up. Bring Tricams.
