Description:

Start thirty feet right of Westward Ha! at a weakness and some left facing corners. (p. 1) Climb the weakness and two corners (tricky) to a roof. Pull through (crux), make a high step, and continue up easier terrain to a great belay ledge under a big right facing corner. (p. 2) Make a move up the easy corner above, then step left onto the face. Move up to the overhang, step left again, then up, and then back right. Pull through the next overhang at a crack and follow steep brilliant jams to the top.

Descent Options:

Silly climber, you're at Millbrook.

5 out of 5 stars Wow, what an amazing climb

Each pitch had a great crux. P2 was especially exciting; a little bit of seepage in key spots. The moves around the corner, up to the roof are great. The moves through the roof are great. The isolation added to the excitement.

Went up this again, swinging leads with Chris. I led the second pitch. The whole route seemed easier this time around. Traversing right at the first roof keeps things easy - it looks like pulling the roof may be the 5.10 variation? Also, I didn't seem to need the fingerlocks on the second pitch, found alternative stances on the face just past roof 2.
