Description Suggest change

I have been attempting the second pitch of this route as a link up with Telegraph Road and didn't realize it had a first pitch that is basically a variation of Life After James. I have taken Bernard Gillett's description from a previous comment on MP (if this is inappropriate use of his comment, please inform me, and I will change the description).

"Excellent climbing, a little squeezed (between Telegraph Road and Winter Dreams), but worth the bolts in my opinion. The first pitch (5.10b) begins with Life After James (clip its first 7 bolts, staying to the right) and then follows the thin cracks (gear) just left of the upper half of pitch 1 on Telegraph Road to its belay. The second pitch goes straight up (7 bolts, reachy opening moves that can be avoided on the right, with 5.11 crux at bolt 4, harder than the crux on pitch 2 of Telegraph Road -- I rated it 5.11b)."

Location Suggest change

Do the same start as for Life After James.

Protection Suggest change

Thin gear and quickdraws.
