DescriptionClassic slab and face climbing on smooth rock with edges and smears.
Start just below a big bush, just left of Uptown Funk. Climb the easy slab to a bolt, then head across a slab up and right to where the wall steepens a bit and the second bolt (5.7). Climb up past 3 more bolts to a large triangular flake (not quite sure what keeps that in place, but I've climbed over it. YMMV!) Pass the flake and continue up the face past 3 more bolts to the prominent diagonal roof/lip/corner. Follow the corner up and left to a bush. Surmount the roof there (huge holds) and climb past thin cracks to a short face. Climb that face (awesome edges) past one more bolt to the anchor (rap rings). 2 raps with a single 70m rope (knot ends!) or walk off to climber's right (sht. section of 3rd class).
Note: it is possible to break this climb into two pitches by putting in an intermediate stop at the mid-way anchor at the triangular flake.
