Climb left side of slab happy pinnacle. Although much of the climbing is chimney, I found this route to be one of the finnest in the valley. First pitch 10A 115 ft or 130 ft. Good stance. Second pitch Turn roof with stems and jamming. Climb hard cracks above to an OW section. At the top of this, there is an old belay bolt and pin. about 100 ft. 5.11 We broke this pitch into two sections due to rope drag. Pitch three, stem creatively and jam flaring overhanging hands to more easy OW. Reach a good stance at about 100 ft. One of the hardest 10 Ds in the valley. After this, we did a short 40 ft slippery 5.10 pitch to the anchors.

Descent Options:

Rappel with two ropes, or with a bit of jiggery and one rope.
