Cruise up an easy corner to headwall. Clip a bolt, and head up and right under roof with gear (fun climbing!). Continue heading right around arete clipping 2 bolts and finish on some mellow cracks. A shiny 2 bolt anchor gets you down.


The route is located on NW face of Desdemona. Start near tree on left side of a large ledge.


Standard rack up to #3 Camalot.

A little crumbly rock detracts from otherwise very good and interesting climbing.
