DescriptionThis is a two-pitch route with two very different pitches. Pitch one climbs a steep hand-crack up to a ledge (with a bit of junky rock at the start to get to the good stuff) and then traverses the ledge to the left for about twenty feet (5.9). The second pitch goes up a thin flake to the top (5.7). You'll notice that the belay position below the second pitch is only about ten feet above the ground and a short section of 5.8 would get you to the same spot.
LocationThis route is on a formation called the Footstool. It's up and right from most of the routes on Upper Infirmary. The thin crack of the second pitch can be seen from below and could serve as a useful navigation aid. We approached by climbing Mumakil and then scrambling left and down a little from there. The start of the route is to the left of a large, flat boulder.
Descend by downclimbing a third-class slab to the climber's right.
