Description

Interesting moves in variety of rock situations.
Could also connect up left to the route "Left Ridge" (or straight up to the route "Connect Low") to finish at the Mid-Level Ledge of sector Moynier, and then continue on another route as a second pitch to the top of the cliff.

Start at lower left corner of slab which is below left from the left end of the top platform of the main cliff of sector Secor.
Up the slab (likelier easier on its left half). Continue on steeper rock above the slab. Stay right and below of the Left Ridge. Then trend right to the obvious left-facing inside corner.
. . Variation (a bit harder): Instead trend Left (with bolt) to connect to the route "Left Ridge" and go to the Mid-Level Ledge of sector Moynier (using parts of the route "Connect Low" or its Variation.

Up thw inside cornerr and exit right onto wide platform at top of main wall of sector Secor, with two-bolt anchor up on wall behind platform.

warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Location

Lower left corner of slab which is below left from the left end of the top platform of the main cliff of sector Secor.

Protection

4 bolts to bolt top-anchor on wall behind main top platform for sector Secor.

Top anchor is two-bolts-connected-by-8mm-cord with rappel ring.
. . . . (bolts + upper hanger are 304 Stainless steel 3/8-inch x 2.75-inch. Lower hanger + rappel ring + chain + quick-links are Plated steel. Installed 2018).

Top-Roping: Likely need to belay from the top of the route, to avoid rope drag or abrasion.
Or most of the route could be belayed from the top anchor of the route "Left Corner" or "Connect Secor to Moynier" -- but then would be hazard of injury of climber falling low on route and hitting the ground due to stretch of the long rope.

In case anchor hardware is damaged or missing or otherwise inadequate, recommend to carry a few feet of 8mm climbing accessory cord and at least one quick-link.
