BETA PHOTO: The climb on the right is The Sting.

Description 

This climbs the right most line. It starts steep, ascends to a small ledge. It then continues up the face until it crosses from the west face to the south face. Very steep and thin climbing. The step left felt so exposed. It is a good climb, and the protection is good.

Protection 

2 draws for the anchors, and I believe 6 more for the climb.

This climb can be either a 5.9 or a 5.10
depending on if you stray a little right(5.9),
or if you take the face head on(5.10)
Either way a good climb and considered
legal.
