|It is much better to do this route by linking the "White Corner" with the first section of "Sword Of The Lord". Climb the corner to the end. Instead of belaying here, do a short traverse out left under the roof past a good #3 camelot and onto "Sword Of The Lord". Climb up to bolt at the first opportunity, then continue up HUGE holds to a good ledge for a nice comfy belay. Sword Of The Lord is a very tame 10a, as is White Corner.|

|Good but short. I definitely recommended the same linkup as Nathan. If you belay below White Corner, you can stretch the rope all the way up to a pine tree and then just scramble off making the entire climb only 2 pitches. Combined with all three of the routes, the overall route is three stars.|

Re-iterating what Nbrown and TomCaldwell stated. If you are doing the “Sword of the Lord Variation” (which you should), Link it as 1 pitch with White Corner.
We took Early Times approach and it’s not bad. It is just some lichen gardening since it doesn't get much traffic. It'll get better as it would clean up, (there is 1 sketchy flake to be mindful of.)
At the top of the White corner, I didn't find the #3 spot before the bolt (Thinking back, I may have traverse below it), but there is a small pod where Purple 0 TCU went perfectly. I did like having a #3 for above the bolt too, it fit nicely in the giant slot.
After hitting the ledge and we belayed there. It was 1 more pitch of Shortoff jug scrambling to the top.
