DescriptionA good change of pace from the steep and relentlessly pumpy single pitch routes that abound here. Fantastic views from the summit, and for the whole climb really. A bit sharp all over as of now (has only seen 2 ascents).
1st pitch: 5.8 easy climbing, go to the second set of anchors (the first set is only there for rapping)
2nd pitch: 5.9 edges, flakes and pockets, many seem a bit brittle
3rd pitch: 5.10c High-quality climbing up the orange streaks in the wall, steeper than the rest of the route.
4th pitch: 5.8 easy but dicey climbing up precariously perched blocks to the summit
Descent: 4 or 5 simple raps, no backclipping necessary, pray the rope doesn't catch one of the myriad edges
