Description:

approach- Climb the first pitch of Apron Strings. p1. (5.10b) Climb the layback of Apron Strings moving right at the top to a bolt belay. p2. (5.10d) Start up the corner then traverse right toward a flake. Face climb to belay. p3. (5.10b) Traverse directly right across the wall. This delicate pitch makes it hard for leader and follower. p4. (5.10c) Smear and layback up up the corner to a belay. Bolts plus pro here. p5. (5.9R) Move left from belay to start. Traverse up and left across the wall. Runout with poor pro. p6. (5.10d) Reachy face climbing past bolts leads up and left to the base of The Split Pillar. descent is by 3 double rope rappels from this point.

5 out of 5 stars one of the best

Be solid at 5.10 face. Really nice climbing. MAYBE MOVE A FEW bolts from the last pitch to the others?

5 out of 5 stars Elegant

We did this the afternoon we pulled into Squamish, and it's lucky we did. It rained the next several days and it was the only climb we got in. A nice and exciting line.
