Description

This route is essentially an extension of the already classic 'FM'. Once at the top of the prominent, left-facing dihedral on FM, traverse left to the base of another hanging corner, essentially linking into the final roof/slot for what may be 'What's Up' (not quite sure based on available information). Squeeze and fight your way into the last dihedral, and enjoy more left-facing corner before topping out the buttress. I don't know if this really counts as a new route, but it's a pretty sweet mondo pitch nonetheless.

Location

Start up FM, and traverse left into the hanging dihedral.

Protection

Doubles up to red Camalot, include RPs, many shoulder length slings. Double ropes are useful to do in one pitch (recommended).
