Description:

P1 is 10c with a brace of fixed pins and a rising 5.9 leftward traverse to the base of a left facing dihedral. P2 is 5.8 with great gear to a stance below the Grand Giraffe OW. P3 heads up towards the GG OW and then steps left around the arete to the ledge at the bottom of the SUPER slab, can't miss it. Last pitch takes you straight up to a bolt and then to a very slight left facing feature. Get something good here, the crux is 10d with definite decking potential. After the shit your pants move, straight up and left under the visor until you can pull through the roof at an obvious weakness. This is a definite classic.

5 out of 5 stars Fantastic

I led the first and last pitches. My partner led a 5.11 variation that avoids the easier middle pitches.
