12 quickdraws/runners on glue-in bolts. Rope drag is a concern, it's a long pitch that wanders a bit.
Walk south to furthest section of Headwall where it forms a giant dihedral. Begin climbing the white granite just right of the dihedral on 2 bolts (50'). Pitch 2 has great edges and steep rock with 11 bolts (105'). Pitch 3 has a couple bolts to top out on the Headwall (40').
Rap the route with a 60m, caution on second and longest rap, it just puts you on the main ledge.

Really well protected 3 pitch 5.10b in shade towards the end of the Headwall. We free soloed first pitch as it was barely 5th class. 2nd pitch is long with sustained 5.10 movements. One VERY hard spot for shorter people but my 6 foot tall partner had no problem with it. 3rd pitch very easy and short to get on top off headwall. Rappel off of 2nd pitch is long and just barely reaches the ground with a 60 meter rope so be cautious! Really fun route, sustained, and in the shade but still a little chossy so wear a helmet when you're belaying!
