Description:

Classic route with good pro. Quite continuous crack climbing supplemented with Tuolumne Feldspar knobs. Two notches harder than the Regular Route. For pitch 3 the .10a variation is not recommended. Going the direct route bumps the grade to .10d, but this crux section is short and well protected.

Descent Options:

walk off. Try to trend left

5 out of 5 stars Enjoyable route

Swung leads. P1 and p3 have some 'don't wanna fall' opportunities awaiting you.

Everyone complains this route is hard on the feet. Sure it is, but sack up! You'll manage. :)

4 out of 5 stars Bagged the RP

Came back two years after my previous ascent and bagged the RP. My excellent partner, aerili, bagged the onsight. That the crux sections felt significantly less difficult than I remember is a nice indicator of how much I've improved. The 10d section is short but technical.
