Not sure where the finish was, but this seemed to ...


Fun jamming and liebacking up the smooth brown corner to an exit over lumpy rock to bolts on top.


This is the obvious left-facing corner system on the north face.


Gear to 3 inches, bolted anchor

The rock is getting a little slick, perhaps because of the cold when we climbed.

Nice little lead with protection a little difficult to arrange down low, but it's all there for the patient leader. I exited through the wide crack above which seemed an exciting way to finish the route.
