Description 

Beautiful, exposed climb that runs dead center over the front of P-Wall. The crux occurs right in the middle of the route, right as the wall steepens. The last half of the route is on great textured rock on easier ground. Either do it straight up from the ground (200', tie in to each end of the rope), or break it into 2 pitches by climbing directly from the ground to the first set of anchors, or traversing over from the first belay of P-Crack.

Location 

The direct start begins a few feet off the main approach trail and the very base of P-Wall. If you run into the start of P-Crack, you've gone too far up hill.

Protection 

7 bolts. Some people may like a couple of small pieces to supplement. Comfortable .10a leaders should be fine without. The crux is well protected.

Did this last year sometime, and had trouble finding bolts. The J. Knight guide shows 2 below the first anchor, where we could only find 1. Additionally, after the .10a part, where a hold broke, we only found a single bolt, whereas mountain project says there will be 2. The J. Knight guide only shows 1, but we were happy enough with a cam (C4 0.5) over on the side of the hanging tooth. (A little off route but searched for the bolt until it was pretty much hopeless, then traversed)

Cool because of the length, and protected where it needs to be, but run out all the same.
