5 out of 5 stars A description

This route is toward the right side of the cliff. It is right several hundred feet of a feature called the oasis (aptly named.) It starts as a crack system in a shallow corner, with some OW about 5.6> Higher, the crack steepens, until about 3 pitches up where there is an overhang with a tricky move. After the overhang is 50 ft of 5.9 hands. After the hands are some discontinuous face, and runout climbing. Tend toward the left and the anchors. I've rope climbed this with a fotographer, free soloed it, and rope soloed it. A nice route.
