Description 

Start on the left leaning flake (5.7) just left of the Captain Hook start. Continue in the shallow flakes (4" piece) to their end, and make a few moves (10b) to obtain the upper crack. Gear protects the crack until it thins down into seams. Two bolts protect climbing up the seams (12a). A small cam may be placed between the bolts. End at the Pirate belay.


Location 

Just right of The Pirate.


Protection 

Bolts, thin gear up to one 4" piece. Small cams useful.

This seems harder than other 5.12a routes in the area, perhaps some of the tiny edges have flaked off?

Nevertheless, a great pitch with thin and technical moves up high at the bolts.

I think the holds are about the same as when the route was put up. I repeated it just recently and didn't find it much different from what it was originally. Grades are subjective at best.
