|The Ice Plant
dihedral to crack to 1st anchor then slabby techy arete to 2nd. couple problems here and there to figure out but nothing too cruxy
the ice plant wall is across from the raven wall hike up and you'll find this climb in the only corner of the ice plant. again dihedral start to a crack.
8 bolts to 1st set of anchors (5.9) 5 more to the second set (10c)
Almost to the top of pitch 1.

The first pitch of this route is nothing but pure fun. The second pitch might mess with your head at first, but just go for it! I'd recommend having your belayer tie a knot at the end of the rope, this beast is long.

9 lead bolts to first set of anchors, which is out of the crack to the right.

First pitch is four star quality--despite that slippery black buttery start. The extension isn't nearly as fun, but well worth doing. And yah, just to be clear, both the book AND this post on MP under report the number of bolts to the first anchor by one.
Number nine...........number nine.........number nine.......

Super cool climb. Corner -> splitter on a face -> arete. Awesome!
