Originally Climbed by Chris Gill and Ray Simpson on top rope. Slab, face, roofs, and heel hooks -- this climb has it all! Off the mid- cliff anchors for Story of, step up, clip a bolt, and traverse the slab to the arete and the face with black streaks. A sneaky nut placement protects the move to the next bolt. Fun face climbing leads to a crux above the fourth bolt. There are two options here for the finish.The original top rope line climbs straight up to the ledge above, then traverses the ledge to the final crack.The other option, (the more fun and sustained one) is to head left after the fourth bolt and pull the roof, which is directly under the final crux crack to the top. After the fourth bolt all the protection is small and intricate.
Impalpable cracks climbs the face to the left of Story of O third pitch. The line starts at the mid-cliff rappel bolts. The first pitch of Byzantine is a good way to get there, or climb Story of O and rappel down.
