Same start as Isaiah. Once you reach the ledge take the double cracks in the left facing dihedral up to the top. The exit is a little tricky. This climb is to the right of Isaiah.

Protection

Protection up to 3 inches.

First ascent Scott Baxter, Lee Dexter, early 70's. Oct 28, 2007
A great fun climb.
There are alternative exits on this at the top
that are not done very often.

My favorite is the direct finish.
Instead of doing the left hand traverse past the cacti,
you step right and up to a roof.

From the roof you can either go straight up into some good hand but steep hand jams or you can pull into some face moves to the right via a slanting small ramp (that takes some gear.)

Did this recently and was surprised by the steepness.
I remember 3rd classing this long ago and sure don't
recall it being this steep.

Great hand jams and stems. It's a great warm up for Isiah. Nov 7, 2008

This is syndicato granitica 5.7. Many moves height dependent. Not reaching higher holds increases grade .1 or .2. Exit move is 5.8. Roof is bomber protected with BD C4 .5(purple). Great route Jul 29, 2013

If Angels Delight is 5.7 this is definitely 5.8. Very fun movement and secure jams. Aug 30, 2014

There is a bomber cam in the roof, just before moves out left. Make sure your belay keeps you tight here or you could totally hit that ledge. Nov 27, 2017

Wow, this is SUSTAINED! tons of options for gear but in the middle section it's tricky because of a lack of anywhere to rest....from what I remember, bigger pieces would go on the right side crack, smaller pieces/nuts on the left. this is steeper than it looks, and in my opinion, the crux is the final roof before topping out (it protects fine but getting a piece in there is really awkward). Super fun climbing, a mix of smearing, stemming and some hand jam action. Stout 5.8. Apr 9, 2018
