Great view and position in the "niche" before the horn. Establishing on the horn was trickier than expected, and the moves off it easier IMO.  Early in the new year in January of 2015 <br />: Corte was a winter wonderland!  Start of April Showers. Start is on top of the blocks you can see about 25 feet up a little slick o/w squeeze.   First crux. Probably easier if you're taller. I found the second slick bulge to be more disconcerting.   Follow the rail out left. First crux mantle out of a small dihedral and over a bulge. Then easier climbing for about 20 feet will bring you to the second crux, a slick bulge with a some kind of cool geometric quartz rock intrusion nestled inside the slick granite. It's about two moves with micro handholds but good feet on the quartz. Then mantle up to a big ledge with featured 5.8 climbing the rest of the way.
