Description

Great climb (2nd pitch is the money). Pitch 1 starts below the Valhalla Traverse ledge and has 1 tenuous move that might be 5.10 at the most any is easy run-out after last bolt. You can rap down to the start. Pitch 2 toprope is set from Pitch 2 anchors of The Serpent. See Topo in Valhalla Main area photos.

FA says 5.11, but felt 5.10a after cleaning significant munge off the route. Will defer to FA party until they say otherwise.

Location

From the Route Descriptions by Dan Dellinges and Larry Zulim 2007-2018: "Pitch #1- 5.10, pitch #2- 5.11+, two ½ pitches. The first pitch was bolted on lead and begins at the same belay as The Serpent. After reaching the small roof, climb over the roof then left to a single foot knob stance. A little foot dance right gets you to a small polished and sloping knob and the crux. Climb up to a good hand hold then up to a traversing, broken dyke. Climb above this dyke to easier climbing and the belay. The second pitch has been completely bolted or can be toproped from the second pitch belay of the serpent. The first two thirds is not too bad, the rest is challenging.  Bolted by Chris Manzanares, Jared Spaniol, and Ryan Cox.  

Protection

Pitch 1 has 5 bolts. Pitch 2 has been bolted and has 6 bolts.  Crux is at the second to last bolt.
