Description:

This is a somewhat loose and strenuous 5.9+ (and than some) climb is very well known although not climbed often, it is mainly done as a part of the 34. 4 very well known pitches from the Molten pitch full of rat shit hard moves on loose crumbly rock but you can still get pro when you need it. The Dangerous pitch with loose hands and feet but at less of an angle. The Devious pitch that seems to fool some with its share of loose rock great climbing over bulges and roof and rope dragging traverses. And finally the Scary pitch which is easier than it looks with its share of loose rock steep moves and a sting in the tail.

Descent Options:

Walk off, rap on of the bolted lines, follow the shit streak you left between your legs down the rock
