5.9, 45 meters. Climb up slightly right and into a left-facing dihedral.
5.10c, 35 meters. Continue up the dihedral as it curves its way left. Belay from anchor.
5.10d, 20 meters. Head straight up and pull the off-hands roof crack. Belay from big ledge system.
5.9, 30 meters. Move right and up a ramp to a ledge. Traverse right to a dihedral and up to a bolted belay.
5.10b, 40 meters. Don't go straight up. Make face moves left and up into a curvy mostly finger crack.
5.11a, 40 meters. Climb up, out right, back left past bolts and into the last steep crack to the walls end.
From the broad summit plateau, it is possible to continue to the true summit by scrambling about 90 min. west up the ridge line.
Descent: Rappel the route.
2 ropes to rap. (If anybody got psyched to make this rappable with a single 70, JB and I would be grateful. It's almost there, as is). At some point I plan to go back and do this, and also make all anchors fully bolted, and equipped with rings, eliminating the tat and tree anchors).
