Description Suggest change

Great corner system with a layback through the crux that is sustained through the upper 1/3 of the climb.

According to the Nichols guidebook, the original version of this route was first led by Fritz Wiessner and involved traversing right into black corner instead of finishing with the finger crack. The route as described here is a variation first led by Sam Streibert 30 or so years later. The Fasulo guide book describes and sketches the Streibert variation while giving FA credit to Wiessner.
