DescriptionThe third pitch of this route is a stunning left-facing corner climbed in a sustained stem. This pitch alone is one of the best on the formation. Check out the position in the photo on the cover of the West Side Guidebook.
Start at the highest point up the descent gully at the base of the upper E face.
P1-Climb the obvious green water-stain straight up to the anchor. 5.11-, 70'
P2-This is more of transfer pitch to get below the corner above. Pass the 3 bolts on the steep face to gain the ledge. 5.9, 45'
P3-The money pitch...get after it. 5.11-, 50'
