4 out of 5 stars 1st pitch

may be a little bagged and requires subtle technique. Be careful not to traverse on the big ledge system on the second pitch; go up fifteen feet before traversing left. Last pitch is dessert.

4 out of 5 stars yosemite 5.8

Great variety on this climb, both crack & face, linked in 2 pitches w/ 60m. Unfortunately, my tooth also shattered as I was leading the 2nd pitch, as the rope drag exploded my front left #10 (it was already weakened from a root canal) as I was pulling up to clip. It was a little distracting, choking up & spitting out bone shrapnel the rest of the crack.
