BETA PHOTO: Topo.
The crux is reach-dependent, a .12 or .13 leftward traverse.
This route has bullet hard, perfect, face climbing the entire way (except maybe the 1st and last pitch). There are a few runouts, but any falls would be clean. It would be best to have temps no higher than 60s!
Bring doubles to #1, 1 #2 and 1 #3, RPs, and nuts.

I guess this was the initial topo and route, but the new book has a more complete and different finish to it. I'll need to try that soon!

Incredible face climbing on perfect rock. Every pitch is worthwhile. I'll be back to redpoint P6. With the addition of new pitches, this is a sustained and enjoyable outing at the .11-.12 grade.
As a word of caution, the 3rd bolt on P6 (on the face above the .11R slab mantle) has been chopped, presumably by Shaffer. The climbing in this section is no harder than 10+/11- on very good rock, just don't blow the next clip.
