Description 

To the right of Hollow Victory is a long obvious corner which appears slightly golden and tends slightly towards the left. Start below the massive wedged block Sword of Damocles feature on a shallow crack, and then head up the corner trying not to pull hard on the Sword of Damocles itself. Continue up the corner before easing briefly onto the face. Pull a few face moves (small cams are helpful here) ducking back into the corner and finishing to the top. Belay or rap off Hollow Victories anchor.

Protection 

Gear to an optional #3 cam. Misc wired nuts to 1" and lots of small cams.

Definitely not for a beginner as the pro is tricky and up top quite sketchy in places. Similar to other opinions, it was dirty in the exit.

Similar to Hollow Victory's top, it just needs periodic cleaning. If no one does it then, yeah, it gets dirty every winter and every spring storm.

Good first half, gets a bit spicy near the middle and then kinda chossy up top and tricky gear.
