Description:

Start the same as Second Coming. Instead of traversing left to Second Coming continue up the crack underneath the white splotch on the steep wall. Move right at the base of the steep wall at a horizontal. Climb straight up below a left facing crescent shaped jug. Plug pro in the horizontal above on tough hands. Pull the bugle (crux) and continue up the face and broken cracks until you reach the top of the flakes that ends P1 of Second Coming. Finish Second Coming.

Descent Options:

2 60m ropes to rap from belay station to the left of Gemini Tree.

3 out of 5 stars Spicy

Fun and spicy climb. Good alternative if you have done most everything at the S. Face. Don't blow the moves at the steep section before getting the difficult pro at the last horizontal. A slab splash would be bad from that high.
