Description 

Beautiful multipitch route, first done in 1985. Originally graded at 5.8, but a few moves were a bit harder, hence the 5.9 rating.

P1
Start in a left facing corner to the right of the obvious large roof. After about 10m, move right to a nice vertical finger crack up to a ledge/alcove. Fixed anchors. 30m

P2
Climb the open book up to and over a bulge (crux), then move right to another good ledge. Fixed anchors. 30m

P3
Move left and pick your own adventure up the vertical cracks to the top. Fixed anchors. 25m

Rappel route. Tie knots!

Location 

Left side of wall, just right of the huge obvious roof.

Protection 

Double rack with one 4" piece, stoppers, and some long slings. Route takes great gear the whole way.
