Between Mutiny On The Bounty and Ship Of Fools. Begin at a sharp flake hold. Face climb up to a large flare/groove with difficult pro (a purple TCU is bomber, but you have to go a ways). Pull the cruxy roof halfway up with good gear, and then follow twin cracks (fingers on the left, wide hands on the right) to the rim.


Standard rack.

Fun route. I had a hard time pulling the roof into the awkward mantle. Flail fest for me on lead, but my partner fired that thing like it was nothing. Loads of good incut edges working up to the roof. May 28, 2009

I started up this without thin gear - it made the first 20-30' much more exciting. Jan 11, 2010

This route is great-lowe balls work really well! Aug 25, 2010
Yes a little run out but easy climbing in that section. A red ball-nut (I think) would work nicely in that part but a few moves higher there's a bomber purple TCU placement. May 28, 2012

Honestly don't see how this is PG climbing. Bring small gear. There are numerous placements. For PG climbing step to the right and try the start of pilgrim's progress.... Jolly Roger is, however, underrated climbing. This one is stellar. Jun 10, 2012
