This climb starts at the lowest point of the Higher Phantom Spire. It Begins with a strenuous off finger layback up a flake to a left facing dihedral. The dihedral is slabby with a finger crack/seam that's a bit technical. We belayed 100 feet up under the large overhang. Then moved left up a slabby face to another sweet left facing corner with a wider finger crack and knobs. We rappelled off the back with a 60m rope from an anchor with two triangle rings. Some feel this climb is easily 5.10a. I think thats because it takes more technique and finess than burte streingth.
