4 out of 5 stars One sweet pitch

I tried the .10c flared hands variation(will be back) but got shut down so I opted for the standard .10 start. The upper part of the first pitch has great exposure, awesome moves, and is nice fun climbing. If you plan on only doing the first pitch bring some webbing(4ft) so you can bail back to the lower anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Good one

Climbed the first pitch of the North Face route which is an obvious 5.7 right facing corner studded with huge dikes. Moved the belay left up and around the corner which puts you at a small ledge about 30ft from the first pitch of Corrugation Corner. A difficult .10 crack and traverse lead me to an easy ramp which I climbed to it's end and found the steep hand crack. I climbed the .10c variation hand crack which was a little flairing and much harder than any .10c I'd climbed at the leap thus far. Though short, the crack lead into a long suttle corner system full of interesting climbing, stemming, mantles, liebacks, hand jams and face climbing to get through. The belay was more or less a hanging belay on a huge slung horn and gear. The next two pitches to the top were uneventful easy 5.6 climbing on rock that got more dirty and rotten as you went up. Easy last two pitches though. Best to just simul climb to the top if doing those pitches as a 60m rope wont make it. You may be able to link the last two pitches with a 70m rope though. A really fun route though it's only one good pitch. But that pitch kicks ass.
