DescriptionA grassy/slabby initial pitch or two leads to three or so pitches of nice 5.8/9 climbing.
P1 and P2: An easy Simo if you choose to. Trend left up on grassy flakes and slabs to a big slopey ledge left of the dihedral, a couple moves shy of the obvious roof.
P3 (crux 5.9): Move up and through the roof, passing a welcomed (old) bolt. A few steep moves turn into a bulgey crack (we took the right one), to a belay ledge just below a steep corner, that can take bigger gear if you traverse slightly right.
P4 and P5 (5.8): Can combine with a 70m. Climb the good corner, with one kind of weird offwidthey, tight move about midway. Belay on 4th class terrain above, scramble to the ridge. This will stretch a 70m if you choose to combine them.
Descend left, back to clear lake, or go ahead and climb the North Face, since you are already at the start!
