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.
