Second Second ascent by: MonkeySpank on 2013-01-12 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Slabby face variation on second pitch

Seconded up the first crack pitch on a wet day. Lead the second pitch, but the corner was running with water, so we moved out left to the top of the corner and climbed the thin face features for a few moves before it backed off again. The slabby face probably goes at 5.9, and I peeled off it once, but it is relatively well protected by plugging gear in the crack in the corner below.

5 out of 5 stars Another great route on the South Face

Very fun route and can be done in one pitch from Sentry Box ledge with 60M rope. Route starts at far left of Sentry Box Ledge.
