Description

Pitch 1 5.9 PG, 50'
From SethG: "This is not a bad little lead. The crux bulge is just fifteen feet or so off the ground so it is easy to scope out. There is great gear at the bucket hold beneath the crux. After a few reachy moves between poor crimps it is over. The pro is spaced for the rest of the way to the tree but the climbing is easier."

Pitch 2 5.10a PG, 60' (not recommended in the Williams guide)
From Ivan Rezucha: "The second pitch is the climb. The described first pitch is just the approach. The second pitch starts from the left side of the Strictly's ledge and (as I remember) climbs up and left to the rounded arete between Strictly's and (?) the Splashtic face. It's a little dicey. I remember a small Tricam. At the roof the gear is good. You move right and over the roof a bit left of Strictly's. Above that the climb peters out with no interesting place to go, so, the few times I did it, we climbed right and back down to the Strictly's anchor (just above the Strictly's crux)."

Williams has it join Travels with Charley after the overhangs and mentions a 5.9 R section.

Location

On arĂȘte between the Oscar's corner and Strictly.

As for the protection rating - a good belayer (ahem) can keep you off the ground. Apr 11, 2014

Description (and comments) are missing the crux second pitch. I've never found a reasonable passage, but the Grey Dick makes it sounds pretty heady: climb the bulging face and roof just left of Strictly's. May 12, 2014

P1 is a fun lead with a pretty safe fall at the crux, but I think it's a notch over 5.9. The "poor crimps" are bad. One of them is often greasy. I think the move is more around 5.10a. Thoughts? Sep 26, 2016
