DescriptionPitch 1 (10a): This is a wonderful warm-up slab pitch for what's to come. Supplement the bolts with gear, and climb through a short slab crux to a roof with a reachy clip and a reachier mantle up onto two... warm black knobs.
Pitch 2 (7/8): A quick "getting there" pitch with easier friction & edges to a bolted anchor.
Pitch 3 (10c): The leader will have to earn every bolt on this pitch, which is steep, thin, and continuous up to another reachy roof move. The roof is followed by two more bolts of easier friction to a bolted anchor.
Pitch 4 (mungey 5th): The topo says "3rd class off" after the 3rd pitch, but unless we missed it, I'd recommend using a rope through the final ledges to the top.
Detailed topo, route beta, and area info will be in the upcoming guide to the Courtright area by Dwight Kroll.
