Description

Aid Crux is on pitch 7 and can be somewhat intimidating. This route goes directly up the Northwest face and gets very little sun so bring a jacket, it can get a little chilly on this one. The middle pitches of the climb are the hardest and are composed of moderate to hard aid sections (beaks are your friend on this one). Watch out for loose rock as this route does not get done that often. Great Yosemite Wall adventure with likely no lines and a route in the shade when the Valley is a bit warm.

Erik Sloan has a free topo on his website of the climb.
