DescriptionDon't remember much, except old bolts and runout slab. The promised additional bolts were not in place yet. Ironic name, considering the lack of face features we all know and love on shuteye.
Technical crux is on the second pitch just after the belay and is well protected (with old bolts) IIRC. I linked 1 and 2 because the anchor bolts atop P1 were no bueno. The real business is slab climbing next to the closed shut corner above. When you can get back into the corner and some good gear, you are happy. Next 2 pitches are easier but runout.
