The route at the far left hand side of the ledge. Two excellent pitches (10b, 10c) comprise this gem. The first pitch is a slabby climb capped by an awesome right-facing lieback that finishes in a good stance. (25m) The second pitch trends right a little bit and is slightly powerful as you pull through the small steep section. (18m) Lower off fixed 'teardrop' biners to the belay atop the first pitch then rap to the ground from there.

5 out of 5 stars Talamasca

Been on many times. Talamasca's 1st pitch has always seemed more like 5.9 to me compared to some of the other lines on House of Cards, Right. Definitly the easiest pitch up here and what I use for my warmup. A fun pitch for your belayer as well if they are not so good at the 5.10c+ grades. Why not start the day with a smile on their face? Fun Pitch.
