Description:

Begin below and even with the right edge of HUMPHREY'S HEAD. This start is right of the recessed area where A CHRISTIAN DELIGHT begins. Move up easy ledges to a left-facing inside corner. Stem up and then trend slightly right. Aim for the large ledge at the base of the south face of the Cockscomb

3 out of 5 stars contining the linkup from Kauffman-Cardon....

Went up the corner and then up the little arete just R of the corner -- didn't do much of the stemming mentioned in some route descriptions. fun! Got ledgey near the top. Belayed just below and left of the usual belay at the top of P1 of Old Ladies to avoid traffic and to hear John, it was windy so stayed below the top.
