Description

I believe we climbed some variation on the standard route to gain the alcove. Steve went out right on the standard pitch and over some roofs, as I recall. It was a typical Grossman lead, not for the faint of heart but also protected if you're a good pro leader.

By Cracky then follows the finger crack, seam that leads out of the alcove.

As I recall, I enjoyed it but Steve's larger fingers made it pretty challenging.

Location

Back in the large alcove after the first pitch of the standard route on the Pharoah.

Protection

Stndrd thin crack, I believe you want some thin stoppers down low.

Once you're past the business of the route, you gain a small ledge. From here you can cut left to some bolt anchors or continue straight up the arete to the top. I would NOT recommend the latter. It looks like fun but it is super chossy. I tried this but down-climbed and backed off when I broke off a large foothold that almost hit my belayer and almost took a pretty nasty fall because of it.
