Description:

Good 3-pitch route right of The Staircase. Pitch 1 climbs up steep slab past 5 bolts to a belay under an obvious arch 5.8. Pitch 2 Traverse left on unprotected 5.9 around the arch then back to the right and straight up to another belay stance under the main summit arch. Pitch 3 jams a hand crack just left of the belay to the summit.

4 out of 5 stars Spicy and Hard to Find

With all the bolted routes that aren't in the guidebook I don't know what I was exactly on. It felt like 5.8. The roof felt like 5.10 and the final handcrack I used felt like 5.10+. Either way I got to wander around on the face for a while which was pretty fun. My suggestion is to take the second bolt line right of Staircase and belay at the anchors farthest right, under the arch. That should keep one on route.

Climbed the first pitch to the anchors felt like a 5.8 or so, climbed the bolted route to the left and it felt like a 5.7 at the bottom.
