BETA PHOTO: Didn't climb it, couple of bolts, not sure exactly...

Description 

This is a very good route with hard, steep, and tricky climbing on it.

Climb past a couple of bolts (5.10) to the start of the steep section. There may still be doubled bolts protecting the crux if the route has not had it's bolts replaced yet. A large knob up and right is the obvious goal. A difficult sequence (12b) gets one to the knob. Be careful with the knob as it's not the most solid thing around. A strange sequence of moves (11c) is encountered at the last bolt before the belay ledge.

Continue up the second pitch of Deception Pillar.

Location 

Lower right side of Deception Pillar.

Protection 

Bolts on pitch 1. Thin to 2" and slings for pitch 2 (Deception Pillar).
