This route lies to the left of Surprise, although the two climbs share a belay ledge at the top of pitch 1. For pitch 1, start 20' left of Surprise and solo up the face. After a 5.7 move near the ground, the difficulty eases up. Pitch 2 (5.10A) is sustained, protected by bolts, with some exciting runouts. Pitch 3 (5.8) eases up after about 20' and leads to the top. This climb goes into the shade in mid-afternoon.


bolts plus a light rack for the belay at the top of pitch 2, and for the upper part of pitch 3
