Description Suggest change

P1: begin about 30 feet down the hill from "East Slab" and climb broken cracks to 3 small roofs. The 3rd roof poses a small crux for many climbers with delicate feet and polished hand jams. Continue through easier terrain before reaching a delicate and difficult to protect traverse to move under the large block to a "cozyhang." Bring small gear to build an anchor and back up one remaining piton.

P2: traverse down and left around the corner, before continuing up the empty crack on the right side of the large chimney where this route and "The Owl" merge. Romp a short distance to a good ledge with many belay options.

P3: follow the crack up to an awesome dihedral (crux), which may seem harder than 5.7 if you don't jam and stem. Continue on up the crack past the dihedral to the top.

Descent: walkoff to the right side of the Dome.
