BETA PHOTO: 10 Edge-n-Scary 5.11a

Description 

P1 (5.8, 50') Starts in a mungy slot/corner a few feet left of Captured for Rapture. This pitch requires some medium-sized pieces of gear. After you pull the slightly overhanging slot you kind of get on a little fingerish crack on the north side and that takes you to a tiny ledge with an anchor (one chain, one hanger).

P2 (5.11a, 60') Move over a fun roof (crux) and continue up the now moderate face staying really close to the arete.

Location 

Starts up a short "dike" underneath the left side of the double roofs on the left of the Ed and Terry Wall.

Protection 

P1 Medium gear, bolted anchor (one chain, one hanger).

P2 7 bolts, bolted anchor.

For the sheer position you end up in, this route warrants a fourth star! One of the coolest lines in the RC. I remember it was pretty simple for the grade but still solid. This route is one of the canyons "must-do's"!

P1 felt a bit tenuous to me...really fun movement but kinda crap gear with very suspect rock through the roof/corner. Bring 1 or 2 finger sized pieces for the upper portion going to the anchors.
