Description

Pluto starts off the crumbly red ledge just right of Think Quickly. Start where the red ledge starts to drop steeply downward. Make cautious moves up and right on loose rock until you reach some good holds that you can use to pull up through a bulge on the skyline. Above the bulge is a really nice dihedral. Continue upward and turn a roof on the left with good holds, and then proceed to the top. Once at the top, traverse climber's left along the ridge until you get to the easy downclimb that takes you to the Sooperb rappels. Aside from the crumbly start, this route is really good and would be even better if it saw a bit more traffic to wear down the lichen.

Climbed this a while ago and as I recall the gear over the roof at the start was not inspiring. Also higher on the pitch there is a large rock resting in a dish. Keep in mind if going after this one that the area directly below is the very popular LJW/Unsaid area. Something to tick of the list, but I wouldn't return. 1 star for position. Oct 2, 2016
