Warming up the muscles on an unnamed 5.10a, Sporty...

Description 

About in the middle of the Sporty area, where the trail makes a little jog up to the cliff and makes a T, head back right on a little dirt ledge under the offwidth start of Sporty Owl to find a nice steep arching corner with a finger crack, above a short slab. Approach the corner from the right so you can protect, (not the left, as the guide says), by doing a couple moves up the blocks in the gully and mantling up on to the slab where there is a crack running up its edge and traversing into the corner. Jam and stem your way up the corner until the crack splits around a block. Continue straight up (right) to do a tricky exit move and up to the left side of the Lady of the Lake ledge and a bolted anchor. Fun climbing and well protected. If the corner was a little longer it would get a full 3 stars from me. For a 4 star link up walk right accross the belay ledge to the belay of Lady of the Lake and do its wild second pitch.

Location 

the middle of the Sporty Area

Protection 

wires and small cams up to about 2" (maybe #3 Camalot), bolted anchors at a great belay ledge
