DescriptionThis is one of the best routes on the wall. It is very continuous at the grade. Follow a line of 12 pitons that are painted green to belay in a hole in the wall. The start climbs from a sandy fiction slab to steep edge climbing. The 4 or 5th ring piton is broken, so a long sling is useful for a tie off.
I have not climbed the 2nd pitch, but it leaves the hole passing a few pitons to a crack system to the top of the wall.
2 ropes are required for a rappel from P1.
