Description:

Here is the only moderate sandwhiched between the desperates. After an inauspicious start with difficult hauling, the route soars like a raptor up the overhanging headwall to skirt the Devil's Brow on the right side. The nailing and hooking will keep your attention without terrifying you, and you'll find a few small ledges at the bivis - always a bonus. And the C1 crack near the top is beauty, eh?

4 out of 5 stars Another left side classic.

After the bottom 4 pitches of mediocre climbing, this route takes on some nice, steep, clean rock. Up high, you could get pounded by bad weather.

I soloed this route over eight days in September, 2003. Trip report and photos coming as soon as I make it home from Yosemite. <b><i>IF</b></i> I make it home......

<br><br>It was my <b>eighth solo</b> of El Cap, and I spent my 199th night on the Big Stone.
