Comments: Shit ya. Props. I would like to see this climb go sans pin. My plan was to pull the pin and place a ball-nut in its place. I never felt comfortable on the crux moves though.

Comments: This is a decent climb and despite the name plus other comments, pretty straight forward.

At the "body swallower" crack the climber needs to go left. I saw the gear left behind at the top of that crack. After getting to the large ledge with the crooked tree the topos say to do a 5.7 traverse to the larger right facing corner. Don't do it! As the ledge peters out head up the crack system it puts you into and pick your adventure to the top.

Comments: I liked this one, pretty interesting. On P3 I tried to exit direct through the roofs (listed as The Bastard 10b in Vogel's book). I whipped a bit and then decided to take the right exit. About a dozen feet below the roof at ring-pin with old green tat on it I exited right onto the face and went up and right (not right and down) at 5.8 R to join White Maiden.

Comments: Solid three stars. Off the two pin anchor on P1 (tatty white webbing) go to the left crack, straight up is chossy, and get into the off width (#5 c4 was useful for sure).

For the finish I pretty much went straight up, just right of Whodunit, nary a move of 5.10.

Comments: Pick your poison. Start facing out and then convert to the lip for a wild ride or go face in for a suffer-fest. I was forced to run it out going the face out route, but it was fun!

Comments: Not "R" as described in the Vogel guide, easy to step back into the crack from the face to place.

Comments: V3 with a good landing. This is pretty tame using good technique. I would never bother to rope up on it, not even that tall!

Comments: Huh? 5.7? I don't think so, super easy all the way, no chimney moves required, jugs all the way.

Comments: Yea, ok climbing. Rope up the noobs on the approach as you pass under Farce. The fixed pin in the small blocky roof marks the start of the actual route. Couple of options to take above.

Comments: Because it doesn't follow the natural line. The natural line would be the path of least resistance, that's what I did at about 5.8. The traverse deliberately goes a different direction.

Comments: Total contrivance. I clipped the bolt and looked up on glorious jugs, under clings to the off-width corner, OR I could have done the actual 5.9 part by traversing down and right on some gnar slab. Why? Either way it's just a small variant of Left Ski Track.

Comments: I have since done the dihedral, it's pretty easy, 5.5 is about right.
