Great technical climbing on small edges and sharp in-cuts. The obvious green and gold face above Laurel & Hardy Meet Abbott & Costello and just left of a right facing corner (5.7). Take fourteen draws if you are going to do the route in one pitch. This a very classic route and the upper section is just wild climbing up and over a series of overhangs to a traverse that gets you on the upper headwall. Climb up the steep thin face making cool, thoughtful moves (5.10c/d) to the first anchor. Belay or continue up and right through the tier overhangs the upper headwall. Climb the headwall past three bolts to the anchor. Be careful lowering and put a knot in the other end of the rope. Great route that will get better with more ascents. Take a few extended draws for bolts that are slightly off the plumb line of the route to avoid rope drag at the top.
