Scramble up to the top of a flake left of the "Great White Book" (5.6) and set a belay. Head up the slab above on continous 5.10+ friction past seven bolts for 150' to a stance with a bolt belay (plus optional gear). This pitch is like doing the crux of "Table of Contents" over and over without the bolt ladder. The next pitch goes up 30' to a bolt, moves leftward (5.10a) above an overlap, then runs up 5.8 slabs past one more bolt to join "Eunuch" at a bolt belay.

Some challenging friction. Fell 3 times before figuring it.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

The FA was "old-style": onsight, ground-up, no-falls, with all bolts hand-drilled from free stances on the lead. I got a wicked sunburn on the back of my calves from the two-hour lead on the first pitch. My feet hurt so much I ran out the second pitch. Don't worry - the second pitch is trivial compared to the first.
