Aid up the wall, starting with the duct taped drill rod and move up the shallow left facing corner to the beginning of the right trending flakes. Step left into a hair line crack and follow it up a small right facing corner (crux). As you approach the bolts on the climb Outrage dont use them unless you need to down grade the climb to A3. When the bolt is in reach start moving right into another thin crack. Continue up and right into the next crack and follow it straight up the center of the overhanging wall to the alcove with a good ledge.
Climb the some what rotten right corner for 6 feet to the roof. Move out the roof and pull around the lip into a left facing corner. Head straight up intersecting with Long and Hard near the top of its crux off width.
P3 5.9: Finish on Long and Hard
