DescriptionAn attention-grabbing first pitch (pitch 3, counting from the ground) with crumbly white and yellow quartzite to a bolted-anchor belay.
From the belay, climb left and up onto the south-facing aspect of the column for the start of the next pitch. Up the face on positive, sometimes nerve-wracking holds, and then around the east (right) side. From here step back onto the main face.
There are belay anchors at this point. Either stop and belay the second, or just continue up through sparse bolts and glassy shards to the top.
LocationLeft side of Trilogy Buttress; the obvious columnar prominence.
Climb either Wizardly Way or P2 of Lord of the Slings, then follow the left-most bolt line at the left side of the upper face.
