DescriptionP1: Bouldery moves above two .75's in a sandbox lead to a single high bolt and more face moves to a bomber handjam and good gear (5.10+R). Above the hand jam the system leads to a bulge in a corner going from tight hands to offwidth and finally the belay (2 bolts). (5.11 R) 90'
P2: Run out chimney (5.8) and offwidth with a single 6 and green tube lead to a bolt (double length runner) at about 60 feet above the belay. This bolt marks where you must traverse out and around the corner to a blind bolt (shoulder length runner), and and into the tips to finger splitter above (11+/.12- or so). 2 bolt belay at a stance. (Don't clip the second bolt in the chimney, unless you are aiding it) (.11+/.12-R) 90'
P3: Follow steep splitter tight hands up to fists for about 40 feet, which leads to a stance and where the blue collar offwidth begins. Follow the wide, steep system for about 60 feet (5.11) to where it backs off at a another traverse and leads to the top. (5.11+) 110', gear anchor
