DescriptionA cool variation to the standard's easy start... If you are new to leading id stick with the regular start as this one is a little less secure...
Pitch 1: Start 15 feet right of the regular standard start... Climb sloping ledges past a pin to a left facing corner... Up the corner to a ledge belay from gear or traverse left to belay from pins at the top of the regular first pitch...
Or since you are on the direct start just keep going to the top of the steep section about 100 Ft off the ground and belay from there...
