A fine three pitch tour of the South face of the main Reynold's Complex maybe a hundred yards or so right from the SW facing Climb and Punishment alcove. When approaching the formation continue up the trail in the wash until the line is obvious. Involves a wide array of classic Vedauwoo climbing - notably full body workout chimney and scantily protected face climbing.

The first pitch is the obvious trough that tunnels up into the rock. Follow this groove placing finger sized gear in a crack on the left until reaching a shelf before a more continous section of chimneying which turns into a squeeze of narrow proportions. After the rock gives birth to you over a chockstone, climb up a slot on the left and then back above and right to a large belay ledge.

The second pitch follows the right facing dihedral with large pro but easy climbing until on top of a 'flange' of rock. The third pitch face climbs with no protection up and right to a water scoop with small cracks at it's top - place your first pro here. Pull over this bulge to a short section of unprotected face climbing in the groove above before joining the wide crack to the right. Follow this to the top.

It is possible to combine the first two pitches with a 60 meter rope but I would not recommend this due to heinous rope drag. It might (?) be easier to combine the 2nd and 3rd, if so inclined. Walk off to the right (east) - we found 4th class traversing too early (?) to the South. Perhaps the better walkoff is right (east) and then North. This route would likely be a 5.7 anywhere else.

the 2nd pitch seemed pretty hard for the last 30 feet!

A fun route w/ an awkward chimney on the first pitch. The belay @ the top of the second pitch is a nice place to relax and enjoy the scenery. The walk-off is damn confusing.

Interesting route - Kaitlin was doing the pink tutu routine in her head on this one.
