Description:

Kinda loose/gritty and hard to protect the crux. Interesting, easy and loose climbing leads up to a left traversing flared hand crack and the belay. Pitch two is a somewhat runout arete with bolts.

2 out of 5 stars Bitch in Heat

Miramonte's book has you starting as for Third Time's a Charm. Instead, start in the crack from the ground up just to the right and try and just follow the straightest line. There are several 5.8-9 options. Won't get in much trouble any way you go. The direct slab finish is a bit spicy with a rusty bolt.

3 out of 5 stars cool climb

thought about doing third times a charm, but got to the crux and didn't think i could send, so bailed right to this. felt harder than DSF. do not fall on pitch 2 up the slab/arete!

2 out of 5 stars sketchy

Tried to lead, had to bail when route traverses right, didn't feel comfortable with the pro and the fall I was looking at. Got it clean on toprope though.
