DescriptionThe first pitch is fun and good if your craging on Cannon with an easy walk off. Great climbing on al three pitches, the 5.9 corner would be a classic if it were on the ground. Pitch one is a tough 5.10. Meatgrinder linked with the 5.8 and 5.9 variations makes for a nice experience if you're looking for another way up the ridge.
P1 5.10+ 110, Once off the ground thin and hard jamming awaits, but is over quickly. Continue up sinker fingers through the bushes to a ledge and belay.
(Here you are just left of the W.G. 5.6 start and can easily scramble off if you don't wish to continue)
P2 5.10+ 40, This pitch starts up the second crack left of the W.G. Climb a short thin left leaning crack and pull around an outside corner and belay on a slab below a left facing corner.
P3 5.9 120, Head up the striking corner exiting left at its top, some rockaineering up and right joins the W.G. At its first official belay ledge.
