Description:

About 20' right of Calisthenic, start up a right facing corner that widens towards the top. After a dirty and forgettable first pitch, start out for the second, which is much better, perhaps even classic. It ascends a fairly steep (and sparsly protected) face up and right to a large blocky overhang. When you get there, make the fun (and gorilla-like) moves up and right to a belay ledge. A moderate and forgettable pitch follows to the top. If all three pitches were as good as the second, it would have a queue.

4 out of 5 stars Airy P3

Followed AJ B through P1-P2. Handed over rack and I led P3. Yellow Alien saves the day in pod through thin dihedral. Ballsy reach out to the right blocks under roof and trusting of super thin flake and commit to clear roof. Theres like 4 rap stations on the way down. We skipped the last and second with a double rope rappel from a fellow couple on their way down.
