Description

This route follows the outside corner of the large, right-facing corner (Gemini). Excellent face moves. Difficult start.
Climb up slab to bolt, then move up (crux) to a good hold on the left. Work back up and right to the edge of the corner, then follow it to the top. Good gear when needed, bolts augment trad placements.
Note that an "uber-direct" start, clinging to the edge of the corner, is quite difficult, probably hard 5.9.

Location

This route begins 5' left of the outside corner of Gemini.

Protection

Rack with micro to medium cams.
There are several bolts en route. Use the same two-bolt anchor as Gemini.
