This route is just to the left of the top of first pitch of Captain Hook and is a cleaner way finish.At the first belay look to the left 1 bolt protects a few face moves(crux) to the Pirate ledge.Rap 80' Or go right to Swashbuckler 5.10d or stright up on Pieces of Eight 5.10d.

Did this climb and it definitely felt like a 5.10. Although the first part is supposed to be 5.8 it felt a little harder. (it does flare a little bit) I took the upper chimney to the left which I think was off route, but was gnarly and fun. (fun cause i didn't fall) The hardest move on the whole thing was at the bolt. Fun times.
