DescriptionP1: The Music Never Stopped- climb initially dirty ramping crack to clean steep fingers (10+) past a delicate face move to anchor. ( I dropped my Ipod while cleaning this pitch and it kept on playing)
P2:Traverse left past a few bolts and gear placements to a bolt -either pendulum to a crack or make a dicey reach.
P3:unfinished crack (go for it!) or jug fixed line about 40ft.
P4: (coil rope)4th to easy 5th class (short chimney) up and right to top of tower, then head back to main wall.
P5:Road to Nowhere- clip a bolt, mantle (10+) to slabs (5.8PG13)and traverse past horitzonal gear and a few bolts around the corner, drop down to tree + coldshut anchor.
P6:Into the Void! Lasso cold shuts (15ft gap). Tyrolean across to ledge and up to bolt, continue up 30ft to gear/tree anchor.
P7: Thin and Thick- flared fingers to flared OW (10+)130ft.
From the top of this ledge walk back thru manzanita (past a great potential campsite)to main wall and then left to access summit above Road to Nowhere start. Rap from chains, then from tree. Then rap twice more basically down the route.
