This is a great climb - the first pitch itself is worth doing on its own. It starts in the large right facing corner. Climb this corner until you can head left and up onto a slab, where there is a belay (5.10-). The second pitch climbs the most left of the three climbs leaving from this belay. It protected by some bolts and natural gear (10+)

5 out of 5 stars Awesome

I've done the first pitch many times - it takes great gear and is a beautiful pitch (one of the best trad pitches at Skaha). The second pitch is good as well, although more typical crimpy face climbing (it does have a tricky crux though).
