Description:

As of 3/24/08 the 2nd climb from the left. Starts up the slope, belay at a flat dug-out stance. Can do in one or two pitches, intermediate anchor provided. Very thoughtful climb with varying moves. Starts with vertical face climbing and transitions to slab moves. Ted (FA) still hasn't settled on the name yet, he's calling it Nine Line for now.

Descent Options:

Rap. Use a long rope (70m) or hit intermediate anchor.

4 out of 5 stars Nine Line is Fine

Very enjoyable climb - made me think! Was cold that day and had to blow on fingers to keep them warm during the opening vertical section.

Led this to set rope for Sean and Ted to bold new line to the right.

Was told this was probably the 4th ascent -- was still cleaning out some loose bits.
