Do first five pitches of Captain Fairview and then ....
Pitch 1: From the belay at base of headwall on Captain Fairview head more or less straight up with gear until a line of bolts is reached. Dice your way past bolts until it opens up to 5.11 terrain. Keep hustling, but not too fast! So thin. Belay at 2 bolts 12c-ish?
Pitch 2: Up from belay clipping a bolt then up to small flake with TCU placement. Continue up past more bolts eventually reaching L facing corner. Climb flake/corner until ledge is reached and set up belay.
Pitch 3: follow "Burning Down the House" last 5.7 pitch. Its a short L facing corner. Ends on big ledge with dwarfed trees.
Smoke up Johnny!!!!!!!!
Start up Captain Fairview and head straight up once headwall is reached.
Walk off like all other routes.
