Start at the same location as Intuition but move left to a large ledge below a overhanging, right-facing dihedral. Climb the dihedral to a crux just below the anchors. A crack in the dihedral provides adequate protection.

Descent Options:

Descend from a two bolt anchor with rings.

4 out of 5 stars Hardest Trad Climb To Date

This was the hardest trad climb I have done to date. Easy scrambling for the first 15 feet and the the crack begins. It is a great stemming crack with one fairly obvious rest spot 2/3 of the way up before the crack swings hard right. The final moves are fun to figure out.
