DescriptionHow could this be 5.6? Overhang after overhang, this route weaves its way up some steep rock.
To start, follow a crack that angles up left to the first set of overhangs then up right through a notch to a good ledge.
The 2nd pitch tackles a hanging right-facing corner directly over your head. It's steep right off the ledge and if the starting footholds break, you'll land on your belayer. After swinging around left at the top of this corner, you'll be faced with the crux bulge. Above, head up right to find another belay. The first two pitches could be linked, but the rope drag would be horrendous.
The third pitch follows a right-facing corner, shared with Dry Martini, until a steep hand traverse to the right to another right-facing corner which takes you to the top.
From the clifftop, you can walk right to rappel over Beginner's Delight.
