DescriptionThis route was shockingly sustained and mostly fairly memorable.
1) Follow the handcrack in the corner until it exits onto a ledge on the right. Belay here. 5.10 90ft.
2) Step right and follow the dihedral for about 100ft to a comfy ledge and good belay below where the dihedral steepens. 5.6. It may make sense to combine 1 and 2.
3) Follow the dihedral as it steepens, then do a cruxy step right as the dihedral disappears to a belay at a good spike. 100ft. 5.10+
4) Continue above through a tricky groove until it ends. Step up into a left facing corner and follow the corner and face to its left exiting onto a good ledge. 5.10-R.
5) Continue up about 20ft to a ledge on the right. Traverse this ledge for about 80ft until below a shallow dihedral. 5.7.
6) Climb the shallow dihedral until it ends. Continue straight up for about 30 feet to a sloping ledge below a flake and corner system. 5.9 170ft.
7) Pull into the corner system. Follow it until a roof is encountered, then step right to a sloping ledge. 5.10 160ft
8) Step right and follow ever easier terrain to the summit. 5.6.
