Living Hell [5.10d] on the south face of The Knigh...

Description 

The first pitch climbs the obvious wide crack system on the left side of the south face at 5.10d. Please add info if you have climbed this; I have not.

The second pitch is rated 5.9+ and follows the ever-widening crack that splits the Knight's upper south face. Climb the quality crack in the left-facing dihedral as it grows from fingers to hands to #6. The crux, at least for me, is a steep stretch of #4.

Location 

This route starts up the wide crack on the left side of the south face. To descend, rappel north from the summit anchor. The rap is 130 feet; a 70m rope works well, but a 60m will not reach.

Protection 

Bring lots of big gear for the first pitch. You need a standard rack to #5 or #6 for the second pitch.
