Description:

immediately right of Union Jack. Follow your eye to a bolt high in the middle of the face... this is the A1 pendulum. Climb cracks to the bolt, lower maybe fifteen or twenty feet, and swing right into a finger crack. 2-bolt anchor above; be keen with your slings to avoid rope drag. From this belay head up to the Half-Moon crack, a notorious offwidth, which though strenuous is hard to fall out of. 2-bolt belay above; most people rap from here. Bring 2 ropes.

5 out of 5 stars Impressive

For the grade this is an incredible climb--exposed, clean and dramatic. When we did it there was very thick mist such that we couldn't see the ground. Very wild!
