Description:

A very fun and varied rope-stretching pitch. Starts slightly right of middle on the Ashes of Stone buttress. Pass a bolt or two, pull a small roof, pass a couple of more bolts, wrap around a corner to a large ledge, climb a small step, and set a belay at very close to 200'. Walk off right. Some bolts/chains would be awesome as there is not great pro at the top and it would facilitate raps for a number of good climbs.

4 out of 5 stars Great route

Discription is right on, long and fun. For an easily protected start, start on the right then move left to the first bolt. Use lots of slings for rope drag

Shicky McGnarsalot. Climbed this with Liz and linked up to skyline. Didnt expect this pitch to be so long and awesome.
