Description:

A classic. Begin on the far right side of the upper ledge system that begins at the Yellow Spur. Combine pitches one and two into a long 5.9 pitch. Pitch two tackles the difficult dihedral and pulls onto a ledge. Pitch three tackles the big roof on jugs and then goes to a 1-2 inch crack. Rap down Mickey Mouse Nailup with two ropes.

5 out of 5 stars Fantastic

Almost onsighted the dihedral pitch. Came down after a fall and cruised it the next try. The original third pitch actually jumps left a little and is 5.8. We decided to tackle the roof finish variation which I flailed because of a cam getting trapped by the rope on top of it and because it was so damn cold.

5 out of 5 stars Seconded

Sean once again paved the way to another epic opportunity for me to climb harder multipitch routes I would otherwise not have been able to do. This was another superb climb that I would aspire to lead one day myself!

Led the route in two pitches. Great climbing, especially out that huge roof.

5 out of 5 stars cool!

I came so close to onsighting this route, I fell on the crux pitch just a few feet from the belay, lowered off rest a bit and then sent it second try

So nice. Watch out for your rope in the crack at the lip of the roof.
