  • Description 

    Follow the first two leads of Turnkorner Direct (or one long pitch) to the nice ledge above a horizontal break (scary 5.9). From here, angle out left to a hanging, orange, right-facing corner. Climb this steep feature to near its top, then face climb out left to a small stance. Place some gingus gear behind some hollow flakes, then find a way to traverse over left to a big, right-facing corner system that leads to a big ledge shared with Mr. President. Take the right hand of two parallel cracks off this ledge (10+). Join Mr. President for two easy leads to the saddle.


    This route is between Mr. President and Turnkorner. It starts on the route Turnkorner Direct, from atop the smaller of two giant flakes leaning against the base of the wall. It follows the first 200' of Turnkorner Direct, then has two independent pitches linking over to the final two leads of Mr. President.


    Standard rack up to #4 Camalot.
