Description

October Light is an excellent testpiece that seems to receive very few ascents. I would highly recommend this route for someone looking for a good challenge. The route is located just to the left of Hurley-Fowler and B-G Crack and is very obvious. It is the intimidating hands through offwidth crack that splits the buttress. Get psyched up and go for it. The pitch starts off as good flared hands through a steep bulge and continues to get wider. Save a #4 Camalot for the top. Don't expect to find a line on this Scarpelli masterpiece.

Protection

You can place everything from a yellow Alien to #6 Friends. Go heavy from #3 to #5 Camalots. Bigbros may be difficult to place because the offwidth section flares a bit. A #6 Friend is good to have. Hand-size pieces are nice for the anchor.
