DescriptionGreat 5.10- crack climb that has good sections on every pitch. First pitch is the real winner, though, and the crux of the climb.
P1: Climb the small finger crack in the back of the dihedral to a big ledge. First couple moves off the belay is the crux and can be protected with a tiny blue or black alien. A quick 5.10b move.
P2: Climb the discontinous mostly finger-sized crack systems. halfway through the pitch you encounter a 15-foot long splitter tight hands section. This is probably the crux of this pitch. 5.10a. Traverse left on a ledge to belay underneath the offwidth / chimney crack that is the third pitch. A longer pitch.
P3: Climb up and through the chimney. Wide gear required to protect this pitch. Finish on a ledge near the summit. 5.9.
