Description:

Classic! 1st pitch-Long 10a pitch that is awkward at times. 2nd pitch-Must downclimb down and left from 1st belay to get behind a giant flake to start this pitch. Starts out as "dreamy" splitter hands which quickly shrinks down to sustained and hard thinhands corner climbing. This pitch sure felt harder than 10d. 3rd pitch-rock quality is suspect on this summit pitch, but climbing is easy (but exposed). Make a long step left prod by old bolts then up to the summit on sandy rock. Decent-rappel the route

As has been said 2nd pitch is awesome and maybe a little stiff, Scarface is easier at 5.11a. Found it easy enough just to chimney over to the crack from the pitch two belay as opposed to downclimbing and then heading over. Bring a black Alien to back up the star drive bolt on pitch 3.
