The crucial second piece of protection is the #1 C...

Description 

Getting started is the hardest part. Ascend the face to start then get protection in the dihedral above. If you don't mind squeeze, you'll love the final roof. Big holds and squeezing in the chimney make this an easier exit than it first appears.

Location 

The far left side of the West facing wall is a tall dihedral with a wide spot up high. Begin on a ledge that ends at the arête.

Protection 

Standard rack plus double up cams #3-5, a single six helps. Chains, 60m rope.

We'very also cleaned and top-roped the arete immediately to the left of The Maw. This goes at 5.9. Would need some bolts to lead safely- a project for next fall.
