A Grossman "tour de force", one of the most serious leads on the mountain.
Poor protection, questionable rock, long run outs.
While this description was from 1985, one suspects the climb maintains the X rating.
Starts just left of boulder that Ratline goes over. Bear up and left to a shallow corner then up and right to horn just below the bulge. Turn the bulge and climb some 11X face. Continue up to the Stonedmasters ledge.
Finish to the top ala your pleasure.
If you're clipping any fixed gear, you're off route on Straight Arrow (left) or Ratline (right).
