classic lumpy ridge climbing. Classic variations available too. 5.7 or 5.9 start into a left facing corner with a hand crack. Top the crack out and place some pro, make a fantastic 5.8 move jamming two thin cracks. p2 traverses easy ledges to a belay with a chain. p3 is the money. Hand jams, gradually flaring as you go up. Pick your exiting pitch, the cave, hurly traverse or better yet cheap date, final chapter etc.!

We linked p1 and p2, 198 ft. The next pitch has the long perfect crack and the spicy roof. Should have linked the last 2 pitches but was confused on the cave exit. Turned out much easier than expected with the left flake to the chalked left crack edge then the thank god jug. Every pitch was 4 star except p3.
