Description

Climbs obvious left facing corner using fingers to hand crack and face holds. There is microwave size block 30' or so up the crack. It's quite solid but use caution in moving past it. I yarded, kicked, stomped and cussed at it and it dint budge. I'm sure with enough C4 it would go, but I'm weak and very un-intimidating;( so take it for what it's worth. Past the block there is a great ledge on the right to regroup. Climb the splitter hands to the top.
I rapped the tree to the left, but by the time you get on it there may be anchors. Just saying I'll get them up. My battery was dead:(

Location

From Southern Comfort you would top out and head up stream via climbers trail to the wall. Then continue same direction 30' or so around the corner. Just look for the obvious corner

I just want to second the description! This is a really, really, fun line. To get there we climbed Southern Comfort (Southern Wall) and then hiked up until we hit rock (there is a nice goat path along the cliff side up top). This route is probably 10-20 meters left/east (climbers left) of the direct line from Southern Comfort. There is a bit of a bulge in the rock face and the route is just a little beyond that.
