Incredible route!!! This climb follows the left edge of a black water streak straight for 6 pitches of sustained face climbing complete with hanging belays. Although 90% of this route is bolt protected it is not a sport climb. There are a few long runouts (which can be shortened with a few extra pieces here and there)
P1-5.6 Climb the right angling crack which takes good stoppers for about 75' to a 2 bolt belay.
P2-5.10a Climb past 15+ bolts for close to 150 feet to a three bolt hanging belay.
P3-5.10a Continue up face for 130 more feet of face climbing with a bunch of bolts and supplementary gear in at least one spot to a bolted hanging belay.
P4-5.9 More face climbing past bolts to another hanging belay.
P5-5.9 More face climbing and more bolts. Hanging belay.
P6-5.10c Crux pitch. Thin face moves to anchors.
Descent- Rappel the route with 2 ropes

a fun route. wear comfortable shoes and learn to find feet you can rest on with your heel. the second pitch is the hardest with it's enduro component. the technical crux on the 6th pitch is a fun, but too short. All belays/rap stations are hanging. Stay organized and make them as comfy as possible. I led all but the first pitch.
