A great route! Strenuous climbing up a small pillar usually too thin and insubstantial to take screws so clip the bolts on the sport route to the right. Use sport route shuts as belay/top anchor.
This thing is something else. Thin delicate climbing that is unrelentingly steep. Butt puckering reaches to some of the bolts adds character. It's kinda hard to grade, since it's so short but whatever it is, it is a memorable climb.
If it's in (and some years it isn't), it forms up in the center of the wall about 15-20 feet left of Damnifino
6 draws if all the bolts are exposed plus something for the shuts.
