Maryann belaying Patrick on the second pitch of Mi...

Description 

Pitch 1: Fingers to hands to run-out slab (for me at least) to nice belay.

Pitch 2: Crack/face climbing to nice belay

The crux for me was mental, the slab. Easy climbing but if you go, you go and onto a small nut (that's all I could get) swinging sideways on a long swing. Weird pulling out onto face but then it's easy climbing.

Location 

Past Insidious crack follow the gully up right, then left and then just look for the obvious crack system up in the left hand corner. There is also a 5.6 right slanting that shoots off a bit up the start of the climb.

Protection 

The protection is good in most spots. I used a #4 once for an anchor but really could have done without.

Led this last Sunday. I thought it was a good route with some interesting moves for a 5.7. I guess I would probably say it seemed a bit stiff for the grade.
