climbed this with kostas since whodunit had people on it. Linked some pitches and generally didn't go by the topo. I led the crux pitch (the pitch after the sloping ledge belay) and thought it was fantastic from the start all the way to the end. At one point in the dihedral with cracks on both sides I got a good hand jam in each of the cracks. It was like leavitating except with different cracks.
definitely recommend this route.
This route was great! I liked it just about as much as Whodunit. I led the 2nd and 4th pitches; we joined Whodunit for the last pitch. The cracks were rougher, surely due to the fact that it's not climbed as much. It was first rate jamming and protection the whole way, including the crux, which was definitely the 3rd pitch. A super fun route, I highly recommend it.
Awesome, can't remember the ezxact date we climbed it but me and rockratg had a blast on this one.
good climb, but a little loose.

Have repeated this many times, and prefer to continue straight up to an overhang a few feet right of Whodunit. This adds a pitch of .10a, and puts you on the summit. Natural conclusion to a quality route.
