Description 

I led up with no protection in the corner (5-3) on the left side of the slabs very close to the Black Dike and entered the arch moving to the left doing some tricky (5-5) moves at the top of the arch and then a run out onto easier (5-4) climbing across the slab moving right into the cubbyhole like place with a five foot ceiling above it to belay. This is where a rappel station-belay is now set up with pins. From under this ceiling I led up right underneath the ceiling and up around it to these incredibly big stacked and cracked solid sections of rock to get into a large long vertical crack system. I went up easily (5-4) the crack 30 ft and at its end moved horizontally right to intersect with Shadey Grove. I contrived a belay, belayed Craig up and we finished up Shadey Grove’s 2nd pitch. Long run outs on solid rock.


Location 

Close to the Black Dike is a left facing corner. Start here.


Protection 

inadequate fixed pins on first pitch. Fixed belay-rappel pins. Minimal trad. rack. Nothing large needed.

This will help some in knowing how the route goes but the angle of the shot is wrong.
