The obvious right-facing corner that ends at the burnt tree, starting from a ledge 40' up, 50' left of The Trojan wall. It is shaded by early afternoon, when those climbs are in the hot sun, which is why I climbed it.

The meat of the climb is wide hands stemming in the corner, but the climbing is varied over all. Hand cracks in R-facing corners gain 2 ledges before you reach the start of the obvious corner. You could scramble up easy blocky loose junk to the right, to get to the corner as well.

I rapped off the burnt tree at the top without incident. (Your mileage may vary. Didn't have hardware to install a real anchor-- go for it.)

There aren't very many 5.9s, and this one's pretty long, so maybe it's worth some clean-up effort and might be worth doing for 5.9 climbers. I thought it was ok, however, after belaying me, Josh decided climbing a different crack would be a better use of his time... and all that that implies.


Up to a #4 camalot, #5 optional.
Rap off the burnt tree (this is kind of sketchy), or figure something out.
