DescriptionStart by climbing 10 feet up the obvious crack which is immediately to the the right of the arch and the Gill route on the south face. Once the large ceiling on the right is reached, start hand jamming and underclinging straight horizontally out right under the large roof. Jam under this ceiling for 20-25 feet. At this point due to the traversing nature of the pitch, you will have climbed 30+ feet while on belay and have succeeded in getting your shoes only about 5 feet off the deck.
Now the crack starts arching up but also pinches down from a hand crack to a seam for a short section. This is the technical crux of the climb and is well protected. Above here the climbing is pretty straight forward to the top.
