This climb has it all. Starts off in a chimney, then gets into hand and fist, then tapers to fingers (crux) with a piton, and a mantle onto the belay ledge with a fixed anchor. (2 bolts with quicklinks)


At the fin ledge, starts directly left of the bolted anchor. When combined with the lower 5.8 corner, it is a great linkup. Start in obvious chimney, then climb the crack on the right side which gets increasingly difficult


double rack to 2" with single 3", heavy on small cams.
