Description

Easy(ish) climbing with micro cams to yellow aliens leads to a good stance where and awkward move or two gets you into tips liebacking with micro stoppers. Fire up to the pin (I would back it up) and then from there it's a small wire placement or two till you hit the bolt. The guide book says there are two pins but the second one is no longer there so you have to place gear in the crux section in order to reach the bolt. Easier climbing above the bolt gets you to the rap rings. The climbing is relatively low angle so slab falls are the name of the game.

Location

There are several ways to reach the base of the corner pitch but from the base of the GC area look up and you can't miss it. There is more than one way up but VJ's is the easiest.

Protection

#3 BD micro stopper to #2 Camalot is what I placed. Doubles of small stoppers (and or brassies) and finger size cams wouldn't be a bad thing.
