Solid line is the version of the SE corner that we did. We found the climbing to be consistently 5.9 with the second pitch being one of the most beautiful pitches I've ever done.<br>
<br>
P1. Start in Kor's Dihedral, climbing straight up and above it to a large grassy ledge at 55m, and then continue to a belay ledge 10m further under the huge, hanging corner of the SW Corner route. <br>
<br>
P2. Move left and into the wide, hanging corner, traversing right once on top of it. Continue upwards and right until you spot a beautiful RF dihedral/ramp with crisp finger crack. Follow this as it widens to hand crack and reaches a narrow belay ledge below a hanging roof. 70m. <br>
<br>
P3. Climb what is now a fist crack past the hanging roof on the left via faceholds. Continue to the top of the Saber, 50m.<br>
<br>
The dotted line is a more direct and steeper connection to the beautiful fingercrack/dihedral on pitch 2.
