|A good option for reaching routes on the Upper Slab for those who've done Beulah's and Johnny Vegas already. Pro is there where you need it. I used two #4's.|

P1 is full-value with beautiful rock and plenty of moves at the grade. Some technical stemming and cool roof sequences make this pitch a more engaging line than a few of its neighbors.
We took doubles to #4 but probably could have gotten by with a single #4 as there are smaller cracks on the sides which can be used for pro. If you only take a single #4, save it for the beginning of the crux.
We belayed on the first comfy ledge above the end of the chimney slot and broke the climb into three pitches. That first belay takes #2's and #3's.

|Good route but go into it knowing that is is by far and away the trickiest to figure out on this wall. It's not a no fall zone like the friar, but you have to do some head scratching for sure.|

|Save #4 for second crux, it's more confusing than the first.|
