Attractive line, disappointing rock quality. Approach as for Schaeffer's Delight, but where that approach heads up right into the brush, diagonal about 50' left.
P. 1: Climb awkwardly up the initial corner past some loose blocks to the next big ledge. 5.7, 30'
P. 2: Face climb up the nicely varnished prow, trending up and left to a triangular alcove. This is a really enjoyable pitch. 5.7, 130'
P.3: Up the low-angle crack, then pull over the obvious roof and on to the varnished headwall. Climb delicately up the fragile rock of the headwall until the angle lays back; take your pick of belay stances. 5.9, 80-120' depending where you choose to belay.
P. 4: Easy rock to Lover's Ledge. 5.5, 80-100'
Standard rack to #3 Camalot, emphasizing small to medium cams.
