DescriptionLeft End Corners is an excellent outing on the far left side of the second buttress. This can be done at either 5.6 or 5.8, depending on the precise line. I'll describe the 5.8 line - the 5.6 line goes left on the second pitch and avoids the final corner (Resom).
P1: Climb up easy rock about 50' to a big ledge.
P2: Go right to a nice crack - Malloy incorrectly shows Chuck E Cheese going up this crack in the photo. The hardest part is getting started (5.7 or so). You can stay near the right edge of the face up higher for some excellent climbing. Belay at a large ledge (100').
P3: Climb an easy gully on the left. After about 60', strike out right to an obvious corner (the Resom Dihedral), and follow this to a wall at the top (crux), 180'.
