Grade III Start between Mirage and Hone Ranger P1: Climb the short right-facing corner and step onto the face above past bolts and gear to an anchor. (10c/d) P2: Move right and step up past a couple of bolts, then wander left and right past more bolts to the anchors. (10b/c) P3: Pass a bolt and move a bit right, get marginal pro, clip more bolts and climb to the anchor. (9+) P4: Super steep, sustained, and technical, this is the best pitch at Laurel! Climb past bolts to a small ledge with a bush. Fire the steep groove past seven bolts to gain the ledge and anchors. (11a) P5: Pre-clip the first bolt via aid, step back down and bust the boulder problem to another bolt. Place gear below the roof and pull the bulge via a lieback to gain bolts and easier ground to the top. (11c)

Descent Options:

Finish on the last two pitches of Fathom or rappel the route two 60m ropes required

5 out of 5 stars Awesome route!

Onsight until the crux on pitch 5, at which point I resorted to a "French free" rest before sending the remainder. I should have aided off of the anchors to clip the first bolt as the first ascensionist intended. 799 feet onsight free, 1 foot of A0 (perhaps 5.11b A0 then)
