Description

Interesting route for "up and coming" trad leaders.

P1: Climb up and right to a couple of small, left-facing corners. Use the face and inside corners to continue moving up and right, aiming for the large ledge at the base of the south end of the Cockscomb. The route finishes up near the P1 belay for Old Ladies Route.

A good alternative is to break the route into two pitches. On P2, work up and left and climb to the top of Humphrey's Head. Rap off Humphrey's Head to Luncheon Ledge.

Location

Lower Broadway Ledge, about even with the right edge of Humphrey's Head.

Protection

Standard Seneca rack

Great climb, and the corner stemming is fun. Good gear throughout and far preferable to A Christian Delight just next door. Oct 6, 2013

I managed to get off route left, ending up by Humphrey's Head near the end of A Christian Delight. This is not advisable, and is a little harder than 5.4. When the route description says "trend right", they mean pretty hard right, not the continuous corner system that flows up and gently right toward Humphrey's head. Jun 11, 2015
If your climbing around a lot of trees your doing it right. Kind of awkward to climb Nov 26, 2016
