DescriptionP1. Step across the scary little gap and clip the crappy bolts to protect the start.....tips/lieback up hard start (10+) as it opens to a perfect hand crack...steep...then gets fists toward top. Traverse left at fixed pieces (or continue up the grungy crack above, not recommended) and belay at 2 piton belay (scary and uncomfortable).
P2. Go up crack/corner/chimney using big cams and old bolts on wall for pro....sustained chimneying for a pitch to another crappy old double pin belay.
P3. More of the same chimneying with some crappy bolts for pro to the nice summit.
We only had up to #3 Camalot and it was a bit scary....#4 and #5 would be good for pitches 2 and 3.
Descend by making 2 raps (60m rope) to the base of the route (2nd is off the crappy pin and Star-driven bolt and is a double rope rappel).
