DescriptionGreat route that climbs steeper than the usual Squamish 5.10.

P1 - Start on the right side of the base area and move towards the bolt on the left below the thin crack. Climb the crack to the belay ledge. This pitch doesn't see much sun and is a bit mossy. The belay bolts are to the left, but look for the rap bolts about 50' to the right and remember to hit those on the way down. 20m pitch.
P2 - The money pitch. Take either the left hand/fist crack or the right thin crack. We took the left crack. It's steep, solid jamming all the way to the undercling roof. I had two #3s and one #4. If you want to sew it up, bring another #4. There is a horizontal crack midway which helps with the gear. The steep crack just below the crux undercling is #2/#3 camalot size, so save one of each for that section if you want to sew it up. Bust out the undercling (crux for me) and pull around the roof. Easy climbing leads to the bolts directly overhead. 25m pitch.
P3 - Move the belay down and to the right. Launch up the gently overhanging handcrack for 40 feet (sweetness!) to the bolt protecting a weird step left. Climb overlaps/underclings to the anchor, which is way up there. 30m pitch.
Descent: Rap the route with a 60m route. Hit the rap anchors about 50' of the belay bolts atop P1. I almost missed them coming down, so keep your eyes out.
