Pitch 1 (5.8) - Climb the dark water streak to the chain anchors on the giant belay ledge. 160' Pitch 2 (5.9) - Walk 40' to the east, and follow the bolt line to left side of the upper slab. 70' Pitch 3 (5.9) - Look for the bolts on the steep block off to your left. Pull an exposed move to get onto the face of the steep block, then continue to the top where chain anchors are waiting. 70' Can be combined with pitch 2 for a single, long pitch. Be cognisant of rope drag though! Descent - Double rope rappel from any of the chain anchors. (I've heard a 70 meter rope is long enough to make all the rappels, however I have not confirmed this personally)

This was a fun route. it looks like you are way up there, but that due to the steep hike in. Sustaind 5.8 first pitch. super fun and great feet and hands. First pitch end on a big ledge, carefull about kicking rocks off there are lots up there. second pitch is 5.7 to crux. crux is a small 5 foot move, 5.9. Second pitch is exposed! stoped there, third pitch is easy but a few stoppers would have been good to have. EDIT: from the top of the third pitch a single 70M is NOT enough to get to the first pitch rapp ledge. mid way anchors are needed. so use double rope rap. For gettin gof the fist pitch a single 70 is perfect.
