Start in a dirty corner leading to a 5.9 OW flair. Above is a ledge at 40 ft, with the crux OW above. Two #5s are helpful, but one might do. Follow an easy slot with good small pro. Above this is a long corner. There is a section of 5.10 thin hands high. We broke the first pitch into two (my partner couldn't move with his rack). Pitch 2 is a combination of squeeze, fists and hands. Plan on a grovel. Pitch 3 seemed to be the money. A long section of wide hands that narrows to a thin hands crux (10+). Move right around a mound and confront an unprotectable squeeze. After about 10 ft there is pro (purple camalot) Higher, there is more pro. The crack disappears, move left--stay low (5.9 R). We bailed before the final easy pitches.

Descent Options:

Rappel. Our ropes got snagged on each rappel. The crack size is bad in spots.
