This is a link-up, with some original climbing along the way, providing a modest ascent of the South Corner Cliffs from the East Path to the top.
P1 5.4 G 45': Traverse over to Stairway to Heaven (or start in it), then climb up it to just below the base of the exit chimney. Traverse left onto the final moves of Misty Mountain Hop.
P2 5.5 PG 45': Walk left to a right-rising corner/ramp, and climb that, crossing Stairway to Heaven where it is moving leftward. Reach a ledge and climb up cracks and right-facing corner (5.5 PG), grappling trees and grubbing dirt to a sloping, wooded ledge.
P3 5.4 PG 70': Scramble up to the terrace below the Provando Wall. Begin as for Fireworks, but veer right along an awkward ledge under the overhang, up a dirty ramp and scruffy notch to the oak tree midway up the cliff. A couple dicey friction moves reach good horizontals; move left along these to join Provando well above the hard moves. This can be broken into two pitches to avoid rope drag.
P4 5.4 G 115': Walk down the Upper Wall Access Path 50', then begin climbing, first up a left-rising rounded small ramp to reach the right-rising ledge below the routes on the Second Amendment area. Climb On the Fence to its top.
It is possible to scramble up the ramp to the right and climb for two more pitches to the very top of the South Corner Cliffs if desired.


Same as Misty Mountain Hop: just left of the flaring chimney of Spiral Staircase.


Standard Trad Rack. There are a few bolts and fixed rap anchors along the way.
