Hard (and nicely slippery) from the start. Gain the arete moving right to left, then straight up. Defined cruxes (11a-, 10d) are interspersed with easier and fun moves. Finishes w/ a worthy crack.
Can descend w/ one rope in two raps if you swing left and utilize the anchors for Split Decision. Or rap 115' from the Sendero Luminoso anchors.
Just left of Sendero Luminoso. The belayer stands knee-deep in scree, admiring your work.
long long route!

Demanding lead! The initial 2 bolts or so get your attention right away, but make sure you have the staying power for the top!

One of the finest routes in the gorge IMHO. Bring your sloper game so as not to deck getting to the first bolt. After that it's a well protected arete crimp and sidepull fest up to the top.
