This has become very polished.

Add some extra by heading up the arete or face on the right at the top.

The gear gets tricky as you move past the ancient pitons (don't trust those!) and into the crux. The upper gear is okay, but will cost you a little thought and finagling.

Yah! Those top moves..... you think you should move right past the little overhang move but the best holds are actually straight above. DOH! Save a blue BD Camelot (3) for the hand slot above the same little overhang mentioned. The move one makes to move up and past the crappy pitons feels the hardest single move to me... you gotta commit to that little pistol grip in the more rightish crack.

Definitely a good test of your nerves and ability to place gear creatively. Fun moves to the top out!

Love clipping pitons pre-crux. The gear on this route is definitely all there, but the fall from anywhere would probably get pretty awful pretty quick. Exciting route, for sure.
