Thought it was fitting to climb the namesake route on this formation on it's namesake day - 6/21/12.

Both pitches on this route can be easily combined into a rope stretcher 60M pitch. 2 bolts, emphasis on gear from 0.75 camalot to fingers. Fun, if not awkward, finger jams and liebacking at the crux.

2 bolt rap anchor (2 ropes, ~190') to climbers right of belay ledge. Could use a few quicklinks and a single 1' length of chain to replace the tat currently in place.
