Description 

This climb is just to the right of Right Corner. Climb the blocky wall to the right of Right Corner and mantel to a sloping ledge. Climb a few moves to a narrower sloping ledge, then move left to a fractured seam which begins with an overhanging bulge (crux). Climb the fractured seam to the top, staying a few feet to the right of the arete of Right Corner.

Location 

Enter the narrower constriction in the gorge and start at the base of the large blocks to the right of Right Corner.

Protection 

1 set of cams, 1 set of nuts. A marginal small cam placement in the fractured seam protects the crux overhang move at the base of the upper headwall; a large cam can be placed below and right of the overhang to prevent a long, painful fall if the smaller cam fails. Two old bolts on the right side of the summit pinnacle can be used for the anchor but should be backed up by gear.
