Up to a ledge then finagle left through small clings to a vertical crack. Hit ledge and move left and straight up for challenging finish.


At obvious ledge about 7-10 feet up that is shared with Sins of the Son.

I will guess that the first crux (which I did not get on Top-Rope) is into the 5.11 range.

Not sure what the upper half is supposed to be ("challenging finish"?).
Continuing the obvious way up the R-facing corner is interesting climbing, but nowhere near the given 10+ difficulty. I'm guessing perhaps the idea is to finish on the face to the left of the corner?

Is this climb incorrectly listed as a sport climb or are you supposed to reach over and clip the bolts on sins of the son? Think the route is too far to the left to reach most of the bolts.
