Description

The crux comes on the 6th and 7th pitches which in my opinion both go at 5.8+. Take plenty of quickdraws because the crux is slabby, but the bolts are quite close together at the hard parts. On some of the easier pitches there is decent runout. All bolted anchors. Comes really close to the regular route at pitch 5 or so.

Additional user submitted route info:
Some more info on the pitches 1-5.7, 2-4th, 3-5.4, 4-5.7,5-5.8, 6-5.8+, 7-5.8, 8-5.7 (5.9 if you follow the bolt line over the roof and do not go left)

Location

Starts a little bit to the right of the regular route. Follow the trail past a big dihedral and then look up for the first bolt. The start is marked by a carin. The first bolt is hard to find so look carefully. You can either rap the route with double rope rappels or walk off to the right. The walk off is steep and requires some down climbing. Then some bushwhacking through the gully. It follows a trail the whole way back down to the base. An obvious landmark is looking at the high point and then walking a little bit to the right.

Protection

13 quick draws, cord and locking biners for anchors plus a pink tricam to protect the move over the roof on P6.
