Description:

Start up Merci Me. Don't haul from the top of Merci Me. From here take the undercling left to a tree (10c or C1). Haul from here(>60m haul line needed). Head up the crack towards the roof, through the roof on bolts, to a belay just above the roof. (C1 since this is also a free route). Head up and left towards a right facing corner with a couple bolts along the way. Classic bivy here. Follow this corner for two pitches breaking out left on the second pitch. Left facing corner up to a roof. Traverse right from the roof, then when things look easier, start heading up and right to below a left facing flake system. Follow this flake system and last left facing corner system to the top. Rap the route using two 60m ropes. A2+ or C3F
