These 3 climbs to the west won't draw me back.

Description 

Start 10 feet left of Pilgrim, just left of a big block. Climb up and right past a horn of rock to a horizontal crack 20 feet up that will take a cam. Continue up the near-vertical wall past 2 bolts to a stance. Finish up the slab past 2 more bolts with the same top out as Pilgrim. You can clip the last bolt of Pilgrim.

Location 

Up a steep trail on the left center of the face.

Protection 

One cam 1/2 to 3/4 inches, 4 bolts. Two-bolt anchor in an alcove that is the same as Pilgrim.

We used a 0.3 C4 in the crack. Fun route!
