Description:

The very nice crack system starting immediately below the summit and going 3 pitches (or 4 if U wanna) up to the summit. 1)start in the double crack chimney, belay on bolts, 2) take the finger crack to the slab to the dihedral, belay (Right ) on a small ledge, then go 3) up and left to lizard ledge. 4) last pitch goes up and right on a 5.7 ramp. Prettiest route @ donner. Listen for the clapping. for years.

5 out of 5 stars great 5.9 but not for the beginning leader

Kind of runout with bad fall potential but definitly worth it.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome route

I will have to come back to finish the route.
(Edit). climbed again on 7/14/13 (almost after doing only P1).
Outstanding route. Did it in 4 pitches although 3 pitches should be the way to go you belay at second set of anchors making a long P1. After the "mental 5.9 crux" over the bulge we belayed right at the comfy ledge. I thought the crux of the route was the finger section, but that's just me. For the last pitch we decided to go straight up (Fascination 10c). It was hard, committing, and a little tricky on pro in a small section. However, me and my partner agreed that we would not have done it any other way! Cool finish for a great route.
