DescriptionClimb the first 2 (or 3) pitches of D7 (5.9-5.10) and belay about 15 feet above the left side of Crossover Ledge at some fixed pins.
1) Climb a steep section that goes up and left via fingers and face, past a couple fixed pins and a few fixed wires. Gain the right-facing, left-leaning corner/ramp (easier climbing but a little awkward) and follow this to a 2-bolt anchor which is part of the rappel route (5.11a, 110 feet).
2) Climb the steep, right-facing corner above, which varies from hands to fingertips for about 90 feet, 5.11b. Traverse right on a sloping ledge to rejoin D7 above its crux headwall, and continue via the 5.11 crack above for another 50 feet or so to a sling belay at some fixed gear (5.11b, 140 feet).
Finish with the last pitch of D7 (5.11a).
