We couldn't find the last pitch... escaped onto the regular route.
Sweet route. Good rock and vegitation to boot. Stay cool on the traverse and enjoy the staircase. More interesting stuff above the staircase.

My taste tends to the obscure. I liked this route a lot. The first four pitches are not hard, but give the route character. The fifth is the crux, a diceyface traverse. the next is the Staircase. It was oozing a bit, but can be climbed via the face below using the crack for pro. Bolts have been replaced. Good thing!

Climbed this in the 1970's in the pre-guidebook, pre-topo days. It was .10c on the pitch before the "staircase", and the "staircase" itself. Of course, that was before sticky rubber shoes.
