Description

Start 20 feet right of Five Finger Discount. A serious undertaking but feasible for an experienced 5.10 leader comfortable on thin pro. Protect with tactical skills on the crux or you will perish.

Location

Start 20 feet right of Five Finger Discount. Just left of arete. Follow finger and hand jams straight off the ground and move up into shallow left facing dihedral with small tree above it. Move through shallow dihedral straight up and then trend up and right rejoining crack system that leads to small ledge on final arete (3/4 way up the route).

Protection

Mostly small, cams, wires, and brass RPs. Pro sketchy at crux. Bring lots of long runners. 70m rope needed to lower through chains. With a 60m rope you will need to top-belay with #2 and 3 Camalots behind you on ledge above chains.
