Description

Start is at base of Tower 3 same as Left Rib.  First pitch requires gear anchor to left of Left Rib after first bolt above notch and at a nice standing belay to left of midpoint rap anchors of Left Rib.

Second Pitch is well-protected with a hard gear finish.  Start second pitch in chimney/corner between Left Wall and Tower 3.

Third pitch tops out from back right side of "diving board" feature at top of second pitch—going to summit of Tower 3.

The crux is very heady and delicate, but the gear is solid!

Location

Start first pitch as with Left Rib but exit tower to left midway up after the bolt above the notch and below the midpoint rap anchors.  This requires a gear anchor.  

Second pitch is about 15 feet back in a left facing corner (just left of Cracked Rib) with a chimney that allows access to a line of bolts to get established on the pitch.  The pitch finishes on a bolted anchor on the end of the "Diving Board" feature that sticks out into space--left of Left Rib and above.

The third pitch goes up the back wall from the "Diving Board" to the summit of Tower 3.

Protection

.2 to 3 inches with several bolts. Can be well protected. Only the second pitch requires gear--other than the gear anchor at top of pitch one.
