DescriptionThis climb starts 25-30 feet to the left of Echo, the 4-pitch climb, at a pin. A very decent climb with fun moves throughout, some of the I-didn't-know-I-could stretch-like-that variety.
Pitch 1: Follow a short depression by slabbing and stemming up to a pin, then to more bolts (with some gear) while trending left and up. You're heading for a two-bolt anchor in a really cool pocket [difficult to see until you get there]; 60-meter ropes, however, will reach the bolts under the roof.
Pitch 2 (optional if you prefer to stop at the pocket, and crux pitch): If you make this into two pitches, follow up past a few solution pockets and bolts to a two-bolt anchor under the roof.
