Begin 30 feet left of the low point of the wall right of the ice route Ragnarock on a small rock slab. P.1 Climb easy but flaky and unprotected rock up to the black bulge. Traverse R through the bulge, continuing to a ledge below an obvious quartz buttress. 5.8 120 P.2 Climb the quartz buttress to a belay straight above. A great pitch. 5.9+ 60 P.3 Step left and climb the steep black face on funky, downward sloping holds. Fun. 5.9 100
