This varied pitch climbs the shallow corner just left of Exit Stage Right to a good ledge, continues up the left side of a blunt prow to a roof, then exits the roof right on strenuous edges and flakes to reach easier ground and the anchor for Exit Stage Right. It has cruxes at the initial corner and the final face section. One hold at the start of the second crux was strangely seeping in midsummer, but otherwise this route is pretty clean and solid.


Start in shallow corner immediately left of Exit Stage Right. You can clip the first two bolts on that route or place solid nuts at the start. The rest of this route is not close to any bolts.


RPs to #3 cam. The climb protects well, but skill with small wires is needed. Fortunately, the trickiest pieces are placed from excellent stances. The two cruxes are protected by small RPs (backed up with great nuts close below) and hand-size cams, respectively.
