Description:

(5.11b / 50ft / 3 bolts, gear .5in to 2.5in, natural belay) Climb the interesting, inset V-notch corner system, left of the main buttress. This is an excellent route, on par with the 5.11s on Lost Dome. It starts trad (textbook nuts), and ends trad, with a trio of bolts in the middle. This route would be super burly, if not for the periodic come-to-the-rescue face holds that seem to appear just when you need them most.

4 out of 5 stars very fun climb

starts off technical with small holds and a flared out notch/crack but gets easier towards the top.

4 out of 5 stars whew!

wears me out just to remember it -
after just "old dog" as a warm-up I only got to the 3rd bolt first try, working out the sequences up to there was a "spendy" business, I lowered to let X have a shot while it was still shady. Must have remembered something, since I at least got up it (still with some hangs, though) on the 2nd try, in the sun.

4 out of 5 stars aid climb

Practiced clean aid up this route. Dan F'ed up his finger somehow half way up and I topped it out. Some placements were just a bit tricky, but it was one of my first aids. Fun!
