3 out of 5 stars two thin threaded tunnels...

Climbing the pocketed face directly left of Calypso III (and directly below/to the left of Calypso III's anchors) is maybe a 5.8 R. There are tunnels you can thread about 2/3rds of the way up, but they are not trustworthy for a fall. I don't know where the 5.10b rating comes from -- maybe the blanker section further left?

3 out of 5 stars ok, I fell on a slippery sandy spot... dang

best line seems straight up to the anchors, alleged pockets for tricams are all sandy and rounded, not sure how a tricam helps. this is almost X more than R. upper pocket area is very loose and sandy, not easy to find good feet when the rock is scrubbing away
