Description:

Around the corner from Ant Killer, it's the big obvious crack, up to a big roof, accessed with a slightly bouldery first move to a no-hands slab, over to the crack (not the straight up crack to the left). Ascend on big holds to awkward roof (use long slings on your gear). Traverse out of the roof, and up to the semi-chimney crack, to set up a trad belay on a sloping ledge. Second pitch to the top uses the gulley/chimney and the face, all trad. Variation (5.7) traverses out roof all the way to big ledge, where you can walk over to chain anchors for Ant Killer. Protect the traverse with your second in mind. Highly recommended.

finally did the direct finish and decided it would be fun to do in the dark. The roof was great but I really did not want to climb inside the chimney/off-width at the top.
