DescriptionP1: This is a M6ish pitch that starts on frozen turf and then climbs a shallow corner until you move out a small roof and traverse right for 30 feet or so (50m).
P2: This is a M8ish pitch where you start moving up and right through a very large roof system and around a corner to a nice belay cave (30m).
P3: This is a M8ish pitch. Continue through the last chimney and roof on very licheniny rock (20m).
The climbing on the last two pitches is very physical with lots of tool torqueing and liebacking, and because of that, we really didn't know how to grade it. We would super love to have another group do it to get some perspective.
