Classic Lumpy route with good protection at the harder sections of the climb. Some of the easier terrain is slightly run out, but not enough to warrant an R rating.
P1 Same start as for “Climb of the Ancient Mariner” but go left after 40’-50’. Climb the crack/flake past the right side of initial Mariner roof until a ‘decent’ belay is found...no ledge. (I belayed even with Mariner’s first belay and this allowed me to climb past the roof in pitch 2.)
P2 - Continue straight up in a classic Lumpy flared crack aiming towards the right side of a small roof. Traverse under the roof to the left, climb through the left side of it and belay in the crack above the roof. Use long slings to avoid rope drag. (OR take the 5.9+ Apprentice variation and finish with the last pitch of Mariner.)
P3 – Easy climbing to the summit.
