BETA PHOTO: Psychopro. Amazing line.

Description 

Climb up the face to gain access to a left facing corner with a fingers crack in the dihedral. Climb the corner until the crack stops(crux). From this point if you continue straight up, you will join the finish of Great Impostor. Instead, place some good gear and head right and up aiming for a large ledge with a tree. The last 20 Ft is much easier than the rest of the route, but there's not much gear. Although the last section is somewhat overhanging, you are on really positive holds, just don't stop and gun it for the ledge. There's a second pitch but most parties only do the first.


Location 

Start beneath an obvious left facing corner about 20 ft to the right of Great Impostor.


Protection 

Most small cams ( < .75") and nuts. A little thin on gear at the top. Rappel from tree at the end of the first pitch.
