P1:varied crack- initially fingers and hands, pass an awkward face move (5.9) to OW, clip a bolt to the left then hand traverse on jugs to corner system, above this clip rap anchor and continue up easier another 70ft to next anchor.PG13.
P2: move belay to the left 30ft. MONEY PITCH- this is what it's all about. Climb fingers in a steep right facing dihedral, pass a couple small roofs and a pod to anchors 110ft (12-)
P3: continue up dihedral on 5.8 hands (80ft)
P4:turn arete onto North face pass a couple of bolts and gear. The exposure is HUGE! We climbed this pitch as a mix of C1 and 5.11; it'll probably go at 5.12. Alternatively, continue up dihedral/ow/chimney 5.10ish "Damfido". Rap the route.


right of Damfino original route about 50ft.


dbl set #00-#2, one #3,#3.5,#4. take extra #0.3 and maybe five #0.4's
