Description 

Pitch 1 (5.9 R) - up solid brown rock past a pin, nice face climbing and thin flakes up right margin of water streak, to new two bolt belay next to pine tree on Airy Aerie.

Pitch 2 (5.10c) - head right to bolt, then face climb up steep terrain past bolts to a ledge. Original finish (5.9) heads left with decent feet and thin flake, then up easier terrain to trees. Direct finish (5.9 R?) goes straight up thin flake.

Location 

Upper Wonder Wall (see guidebooks or general Wonder Wall for approach). See photo for route start. At top of route, can traverse north for about 20' (easy 5th) to Ladyslipper two bolt anchor for two rope rappel to start ledge.

Protection 

Standard Whitehorse rack mostly taking smaller gear. First pitch is R because some gear is a bit sparse and suspect in flakes. The crux is well protected by new bolts. Double ropes not a bad idea.
