A fine climb that has laybacks, fingerlocks, fistjams, off-width arm/knee bars, crimps, edges, slabby smears, mantles, and exposure. With some gardening, a definite 3 star!  Pay attention here! We opted for the route in red after the "3rd class" ramp at pitch 7 1/2, but should have traversed left towards the arete (blue line), where the arch was. The red arrow indicates where the double bolt belay station is. The last pitch, with a few bolts and fun 5.8-5.9 mantles/smears beckon.  Did I lead us right? I'm belaying at the middle of pitch 7 on the "3rd class" section. Nice patina rock below, but zero bolts and only 4 pieces placed-airy, but not harder than 5.6-5.7.  On pitch 6. Although Robb looks like he is doing weed control, we found this "open to interpretation" section a nice 5.8, avoiding the left crack laden with thorn bushes.  The famous "bivy ledge" on pitch 5 (our 3rd pitch with 70m rope). Lunchtime!
