Another Lumpy classic! Pitch 1: 5.8 great gear,climb the slightly left leaning crack ending at 2huge bolts on the right Pitch 2: climbv straightup from the belay via 5.10a thin finger crack. Traverse left at the horizontal break. clip a bomber bolt and do a couple of chicken wing moves up into the short chimney/offwidth. At the roof follow the crack out right and pull through the roof(5.10c). Belay at the stance just above the roof. Pitch 3: Continue along the same crack system as it diagonals up and right at 5.9 belay in the "Cave". Pitch 4: Climb any of the 3 exit pitchs for the "cave".(5.8-.9).

Awesome! I had been wanting to onsight this climb for awhile and finally did it in aug. A couple of notes, you can link pitchs 2 and 3 but it's a stretch! You can also link this climb with others to keep the difficulty more continous...after pitch 2 do High Plains Drifter(5.10b) or after pitch 3 do Cheap Date(5.10b).
