George topping out on the Dread Pirate. The Fezzik...


Very thin start to fun and varied climbing. Has a face climbing crux right off the ground and a power crux at the top. The offwidth to the right of the corner is the Fezzik variation. It goes at 5.10, #5 and #6.


Ten feet to the right of Title Nine; this is the obvious corner with big OW just to its right.


#0 to #2, about two each. Useful to have a #0.1 or 0.2 to protect the moves off the 3/4 way ledge.

RPs might protect the boulder problem start. If it seems uncomfortable, use a stick to drop in a bigger nut above. Or go up the lightning bolt OW to the right.

Be ready to drop a 000-C3 cam or a #4 stopper into the crack just above the crux ledge. Alternately, you can pop a #1 C3 cam into the tips crack way out right. Either way, you will want some gear soon after mantling up out of the hard corner start.
