The best route at the crag, Ascendancy fires up a nice face and dihedral system at 5.11 climbing to a difficult arete sequence. A no hands rest comes just before the left-arching finale and after standing on top of the arete. Cruxy work comes in getting established on the arete and then moving up it via a powerful pinch. I was spit off the arete on a red point burn, where upon Mark clinched the FFA with a nice solution to getting established on the arete and then powering straight up it. Despite bolting and cleaning the line, I thought it was hard to read on the sharp end. Without giving any beta away, the thing that is hard to suss out is preventing the barn-door as you move onto and up the arete.
