(from the Falcon Guide) *** The leftmost climb on the face proper. An acute corner leads to a triangular overhang. Pull the roof (crux) to a ledge and handcracks above. This used to be rated 5.8!

4 out of 5 stars Quality

Quality climb...great crack work. Starts with a high angle open book with a crack in the corner that starts at hands and narrows to fingers. The open book pulls a roof with a wide and deep crack that narrows as it goes up. It then climbs some easy slab until reaching a good flake and crack that leads to a large ledge. From this ledge it then heads up a beautiful standard hand crack to the top. Pretty long climb in all, to slingshot it, it was nice to have a 70m rope...but do-able with a 60...a little scrambling up to tie in.
