P1: Step left off of stacked blocks and do some unprotected moves to gain an overgrown flake/crack system which leads to a ledge. Continue up and over an overhang, to easier ground and the large Sorcerer ledge (5.9).

There are other (recommended) ways to reach this ledge. See “The Sorcerer” page for alternatives.

P2: Climb the finger crack, passing a large flake and a shallow right-facing dihedral. There’s an updated bolted anchor (equipped for rappel) at the end of the dihedral. 

Stellar pitch! (5.12a).

P3: Meandering face climbing leads past 5 bolts. The crux is well-protected but it’s a bit runout as the difficulty eases. This pitch ends on a ledge at a bolted anchor shared by the route Kingpin . Bring a finger-size piece as a directional before traversing to the ledge if you like your partner (5.10c).

P4: Angle right and follow a thin crack/groove system past a two-bolt anchor (optional belay) to the crux roof pull of Coatimundi. Multiple 11- pulls on this pitch. (5.11a).

P5: Climb easy ground to the top of the cliff.
