Description:

Start at the crack to the right of Oblique Twique. P1: Climb up to the triangular overhang. Step right and up to the shallow right facing corner in the roof with a pin in it. Up the roof and traverse left 10 ft. Climb up to an overhang with a thin horizontal. Hand traverse right along the horizontal 15 feet (crux, pumpy) then up to the belay-rap station at the top of the pillar. Can also avoid the hand traverse by diaganoling up right through overhangs to the top of the pillar. P2: Traverse left around the corner past a pin, then diaganol up left to the GT ledge and up another 10 feet to the belay. P3: Diaganol up left to a crack on clean white rock. Follow the crack till the top.

2 out of 5 stars not for the budding 5.6 leader

P1 is a 5.6 according to the gray dick. I thought it was very sand bagged for a 5.6. First roof is well protected, second roof is a hard pull, moves up to the pedestal are unprotected for several feet. The traverse was pumpy, but well protected. The rock was really rotten up through the pedestal.

4 out of 5 stars Good First Pitch

Bailed after the first pitch but it had a lot of variety with a nice easy roof and a good traverse.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

Led P1 and seconded P2 and P3. P1 is stiff for 5.6, and felt harder than the 5.7 P3 crux.

3 out of 5 stars Shit Creek

Fun first pitch, exciting lead. The traverse on p2 is fun, but the rest of p2 and p3 are not worth it.
