Description:

Starts in a corner just uphill from Rewritten. P1 (traditionally) moves up a 5.4 corner to a belay at ~40' just below the wide stuff. P2 starts awkwardly in a wide corner and continues up to a pin below the stemming problem crux. Once through with the stemming and at the "Thanks God!" bucket, step across to the right and up easy fifth class for 30' to the Red Ledge. Most parties only do the 1st 2 pitches then join Rewritten, but the route traverses off the ledge to the left through a 5.9 roof, then joins Rewritten at Rebufatt's Arete.

3 out of 5 stars Fun In A Scary Way

The first two pitches I combined which was fun but we were trailing another party and then a party came up behind us on Rewritten and it made for a long day on what is a fairly quick climb. The third pitch is quite hair raising as everything you're climbing is hollow and larger than most cars. Fun moves though. The rest is cruiser and fun.

We combined the first two pitches almost entirely in the dark (my headlamp shorted out). This made for an interesting outing.

Good Eldo stuff. Some loose rock in unfortunate spots.

One fall, down low. Not used to that Eldorado rock. I need to get back there...
