Pink Pants delight face

Description 

Delicate, sparse face moves that lead to lieback then roof pull.

p.s. certainly this line has been done 100's of times before but it's in none of the books and way too much fun to leave undocumented. If someone has the real name/FA let me know and I will change it


Location 

just right of Rosebush is a smooth face with some great movements


Protection 

small gear

Thanks for posting this route, i climbed it and it is a great route, pity it is not in the guide books.

This a very fun route! I'd say if you stay in the middle of the face the route is a 5.10 to 5.10b.

Going up the face and then cutting left to the overhung dihedral is in the 5.9 range.

Definitely agree with chad - If you stay away from the dihedral and up the middle of the face - it's in the 5.10 range. (For me and my shuffling feet anyway. heh)

does this route get led often? should get a rating for how dangerous it would be on lead? pg-13 maybe R?

For leading this route I'd say it's in the R / X range.
