Description:

A fairly nice, but somewhat serious line that starts to the right of Aquarium in an obvious left facing dihedral system- make sure you rack up at the car as the descent takes you well away from the start and going back would take an extra hour or more. Start behind some bushes in a nice cave at the bottom. Pitch 1: Follow the dihedral up for 180' to a cozy little alcove and belay, 5.6 Pitch 2: Continue up the dihedral, stepping left to reach a stance below a huge right facing dihedral above. 190', 5.6 Pitch 3: Climb up the slot on the left to the bottom of the dihedral, then step right out of the slot at a chockstone (be careful here) and climb the slab up for 100' to a belay ledge. 190', 5.7R Pitch 4: Move the belay to the bottom of an obvious chimney system to your left. Climb the chimney system to a good ledge, then ascend the slab (R) above and right to a stance and belay. 5.8R, 160' Pitch 5: Climb up and step left to a good crack system and follow it to a nice summit ledge. 5.6, 50'

Descent Options:

The only viable option is to head west and south into bowl at the base of the Brownstone Wall. From here, you can either go up to the wall and skirt the base until you reach Nightcrawler or you can work your way down into the bowl via difficult routefindi

3 out of 5 stars fun

good route- the third pitch is a little sketch, but not too bad. the first two are awesome, though.
