DescriptionThis is a longer climb via the nature of the slanting cracks, and a fairly good climb at that. The lower section is interesting and mellow, and the upper section changes the character of the climb and provides a crux, albeit only 5.8.
Start up into the wide right-leaning crack and follow this for a brief section of wide climbing. A #5 Camalot would work here, but if you don't have one the climbing is not difficult and smaller placements are available shortly. Continue up and right as the wide crack splits into a smaller crack and an upward facing flake. Continue onward on more moderate terrain, heading up and right on a continuous crack system to intercept a short but striking, left-leaning, left-facing, red dihedral. Find the brief sections of the crack in this corner where it is not flaring for both good gear and good locks and execute crux moves to finish this section of rock to the top.
