DescriptionA Fun 3 pitch climb, the second pitch of which is great.
Pitch 1: 5.10a ~100 ft PG13
Face climb off the ground on jugs to a straight in obtuse dihedral. Place some small pro to a piton and head left. 5.9+, (I thought this was the crux). Continue up with sparce gear to a low-angle groove with a 5.10a slabby crux.
Pitch 2. 5.10d ~140 ft
A great exciting pitch
Face climb up from the belay to the bolt, can sling a flake and get a small nut. Clip the bolt at the crux and pull 5.10b moves to a nice stance under a roof. Head left (tricky) to the main left facing dihedral. Head up placing small pro to another roof. 5.10d crux, Lie back around this and head up to easier ground. Run the victory lap to a nice belay 40 ft higher. Good gear and optional bolt on Seventh Sojourn. Belay takes .75 - 1 camelot's.
Pitch 3 5.10a or 5.9 100ft
5.10a variation, head left clip a bolt and make a few moves of 5.10a
5.9 Head straight and right and head up a chimney, can angle right for more climbing.
