Very fun, high-quality route. 3-pitch sport (2 pitches if starting from where the trail ends at the Valhalla Traverse). See topos in the photos for the Main Valhalla area. I did not do the first pitch, but pitch 2 felt sustained 5.9 without any crux. FA party's description below.


From the Route Descriptions by Dan Dellinges and Larry Zulim: "5.10, very hard. Three pitches. This climb can be found as you start down the gully just off the broken ledges below Lancelot. Look for the dyke where it intersects the gully. Belay from a small oak tree at the beginning of the dyke. First pitch, 5.10a, 8 bolts. Follow the dyke to the bolt belay station. The first two thirds of the next pitch is unforgiving, 5.10, with few rest spots. The third pitch is only 5.7 and continues along the dyke to the belay bolts. This pitch is also used as a fourth pitch with a lower intersecting climb called “The Sword, which begins on the ground below. 12 draws, two for belay directional."


14 draws. Well bolted. 70m rope required to rap down, or bring 2 ropes.
