This route is an open project. The line is beautiful and will continue to climb amazing crack systems and thin face to the top.

The C1 pitch may be retro-bolted for a free ascent as it would require a desperate 11+ lead with very thin brass.

Ben and I rapped the route from the standard rap route over Joe's Pocket Monkey and put one station above the major sickle roof and a single bolt beside a mega hollow flake for the descent.

This route has amazing diversity and will be a challenging gem once completed.
