Description

This is the diagonal finger and hand crack. The crux is at the very top, best not blow it. Its pretty consistently the same difficulty throughout, actually.

Protection

I suppose one could lead this with just one each of purple, green, and red BD (finger-hand size). Anchoring may be a problem though: on top, there are only some very rusty, ancient bolts. I would not trust them.

Descent

At the top, it seems like there are two finishes: you can go right and up slopey steps. Or you can follow the crack all the way to the left. It ends at a nice jug.

In either case, the easiest way off the pyramid is on the slabby side left of the crack (where the left finish ends). There is a crack in the slab which can be laybacked.

Down climb the slabby crack until you can reach the tree. Stem between the tree and slab for a couple moves until you are back safely on the ground.

currently some fixed cord on the anchor directly through the hangers. It looks in good condition and makes the down climb substantially easier!

Also the slab problem on the side looks like it was recently cleaned. Nov 4, 2018
