Description

This route is a fun and less commiting way to reach the summit of The Cornerstone. I would say the crux is the beginning with a wide, almost OW, right facing flake which is hard to protect and leaves the climber trying to decide wether to climb the left or right side of it. I recommend the grainy yet low angle left. The next notable section would be midway up the climb at a right protruding flake that underclings to the right.

Location

This route climbs the right facing flake system immediately left of the obvious General Hospital route on the center face of The Cornerstone.

Protection

A double set of basic cams will protect this climb well. A couple double length may be handy to minimize rope drag. There is a large boulder at the summit with an old sling around it and rusted rap rings. (We walked off to the west or right as you face the climb)
