|An excellent and varied climb. From the ground, P1 looks to be solidly in the mid-5.10 range, but the holds are definitely there - win new friends and silence your enemies with a photo of yourself exiting the overhanging crux on the handy, yet tenuous undercling/lieback flake. Both P2 and P3 also have their interesting moments.|

My bad, I got a little anxious and put the route up before we were clear on which finish we'd done.
P3 has only two options - the obvious left leaning crack on the outside of the flake/block is the regular finish to Quits and allegedly goes at 9+ or so. The Hollerith Exit is located between the flake and the block and follows a short but sweet fist crack up in a bit of a squeeze job to the top of the block. This option is '5.8', but might feel harder, depending on who you ask and how macho you are.
Sorry for the confusion. Either way, there are two distinct and beautiful choices to exit this route.

|Great route that takes you to the top of the massif. Did the left sequence on the last pitch and felt like it was really stout. Reminded me of lower progressive but a slight bit harder.|
