At the top of the last pitch you can turn left with back against the right wall and get a break from the jamming. The crack gets wider, and the last moves to the top are cruxy.

Still hard! Getting through the "A"-shaped alcove below Paul is quite hard. Where Paul is is straightforward splitter jams but sustained. Higher up it gets a little strange as it gets wider. You really want 4 or 5 gold Camalots for this pitch. Paul lowered almost to the belay to back clean. Chuck Graves, on a subsequent ascent, lowered twice to back clean.

At the final hard moves of the P4 crux crack. You really have to milk the (only) several rests on this pitch. I did not successfully do that on this attempt. <br /> <br />Photo by Paul Rezucha.

The P3 "5.9" layback was the easiest part of the climb. If you're into that sort of thing, you may be able squeeze through the slot and avoid the layback. The P4 crux crack is visible at the top left of the photo, and above that is the left wall of the final corner. <br /> <br />Photo by Paul Rezucha.

Cleaning the second belay at the start of P3. The start of P3 is a 5.9 traverse straight sideways from the edge of this ledge/flake. If you lack the hand-sized gear to belay here, you can place some small gear high and right and do the traverse left as part of P2 (but then you need the proper gear to belay further left--#4 Camalot and #0.75 Camalot will do it).

Midway up this long second pitch you move right to the other crack. The entire pitch is quite difficult and awkward. It felt like 5.9 to me when I led it this year.

The thin hands to fingers crack is gnarly with sharp knobs. As it leans to the left it gets easier. <br /> <br />Photo by Paul Rezucha.

You can squeeze through (maybe) from the inside to this position, or you can climb the outside and then swing into the squeeze. From here, it's a struggle to reach the jams at the base of the crack. <br /> <br />Photo by Paul Rezucha.

Heel toeing in the strange slot. The rope runs into the "cave" to some gear deep inside. You can tunnel up further and totally top rope this first crux. <br /> <br />Photo by Paul Rezucha.

Approaching the "hollow" part. There are anchors just to the right of Chuck that can be used to descend or to belay for Planetary Pull 5.8. Was the whole wall originally as mossy as the corner?

Hollow Man climbs the crack/flake and arete above on the left of the mossy dihedral. Vrainavore 10a is the crack system on the right. Handcrack-a-rete is just out of sight on the right side of the photo.

Looks easy, doesn't it? The difficult in part depends on hand size.

Stepping up and left from here is way harder than it looks, and both Lenny and I used the crack on the left. This climb looks like 5.8 from the ground--don't be deceived.

Moving out this corner on P1 is intimidating and a bit awkward, but eventually not that hard. I think the photo needs rotating a bit to make it look as steep as it feels. <br />Photo by Kenny Parker.
