Description 

Pitch 1 (5.9, 5 bolts + pro): Nice friction slab with occasional edges for hands. Belay at a 2 bolt anchor.
Pitch 2 (5.7, 3 bolts): Fun "get there" pitch. Belay at a 2 bolt anchor on the side of the right-facing feature.
Pitch 3 (5.10b, 7 bolts + pro): Tricky moves on gear through the right facing feature. Pull over the roof to a series of bolt protected faces and ledges. Belay at a 2 bolt anchor.
Pitch 4 (5.6, 3 bolts + pro): Another "get there" pitch with good runouts on easy terrain. Gear belay between a giant block and the head wall.

Topo says "3rd class" from here, but we stayed roped up and did a 4th/5th class traverse to climbers left to get around mungy vertical terrain

Detailed topo, route beta, and area info will be in the upcoming guide to the Courtright area by Dwight Kroll.
