Vertical face climbing left of the first pitch of Second Stanza. A moderate 5.7ish section builds up to some 5.10 moves past a series of horizontals. Above this is a rest in a very small left facing corner. From here, step right and climb up a path through the licheny face on crystals and pockets (crux). The hardest moves are perhaps 12-15 feet above the last protection -which is in the small corner before stepping right. There is a 2 bolt anchor on a small ledge, maybe 20-25 feet(? someone update this if you find it) left of and above the start of the second pitch of Second Stanza.
Left of the first pitch of Second Stanza. Rappel or toprope are possible with a single 60 rope from 2 bolt anchor.
A handful of nuts plus some small and medium cams for the horizontal cracks.
