DescriptionI'm only describing the quality first pitch here. Lawyer and Haas make it a point to indicate that the upper pitches don't really get climbed much. From what I could see, it's clear why.
The first pitch offers incredible face climbing with a tricky crux.
Climb up to the first bolt and trend up and left to the forth bolt. A tricky and thin sequence left brings you to the small, shallow left-facing corner/edge and the last bolt. Make a hard move to the ledge (crux) and around the arete and up easier terrain to the fixed anchor.
LocationStart: 20 feet to the left of Hesitation below a line of left-trending bolts to the arete.
Descent: Rappel from the two-bolt anchor
