A fun little route with an exciting crux for both leader and follower.
Climb the crack to the flake, at the top of the flake clip a bolt then traverse left to a seam and follow it to Memorial Ledge.
Directly above the top of Vector, Vitus, and Calculus, is a VERY obvious flake leading to Memorial Ledge. Start in the gully below the flake at a crack system.
gear to 4"
In the perfect hand crack
Nice flake, good gear

It's only PG-13 if you don't have small gear. I placed a 0 or a 00 Mastercam in the upper seam and felt safe. That being said, this upper part is difficult to protect without introducing a lot of rope drag due to the bolt placement. Fun route though, would love to try it again when I'm more fresh.

A fun route. Use a double length sling on the bolt to minimize rope drag.. the traverse looks more gnarly than it actually is ... there's good foot and finger holds.

I wouldn't call this PG. Perfect pro up to the bolt, then just two moves to the left, over very smooth & safe falling terrain, but it's not that hard anyways. Then step up and a perfect #1 C3 goes in a slot. Two more moves and you're done.

Well protected, not PG13. I climbed this and missed the bolt on the traverse and would still call it well protected.

Really good! Traverse was surprising when I got to it but, turned out to be solid.
