Description:

Starting slightly uphill to the right of Mindbender, climb an easy crack leading to a ledge in a right-facing corner. Step to the right and up a hidden chimney leading to a crack up to a ledge with a couple of pins below a bush in a crack, and belay. Climb up under "The Thumb", and around it to the left, then up (crux) to a nice crack in a left-facing corner. Belay at the top of "The Thumb". Climb the crack above, and when it thins out (A4 variation), follow the bolts out left (hard) to a thin crack, and when that crack ends, head right (pins and bolts) and up to a small ledge (this is a long, hard sustained pitch, with tough routefinding). Belay on the small ledge, then climb the easier face above to another belay at a bush, then scramble up the easy gully to the top.
