Description

This pitch starts well above the ground, so the question is what do you climb first to get to it. The way we did it was: 1st pitch: Bushwhack Crack to the chains.2nd pitch: Exposed and runout, but easy traverse left and up until you can get a piece in a crack just above the crux of Mind Blow, and then follow the next 2 bolts up to the anchors.3rd pitch: The Climb ---- Follow a rightward ramp until it ends and then follow the line of 3 bolts up to the anchors on beautiful chickenheads and crystals. A ladder in a sea of granite.Either do 3 1-rope raps or 2 2-rope raps.

Protection

3 bolt anchor at the top, and 3 draws for the climb.
