Fun 5.11- climbing leads to a high crux. A series of bad holds after a powerful clip yield access to the headwall. Commit to the bad holds and you are quickly rewarded with an easy finish.
This route only lacks in stars due the variance in difficulty between the crux and the rest of the climb
Below the right side of the big roof. Left of Salutations and Delirious.

"Those that looked up from afar thought that the mountain was crowned with storm. Thunder they heard, and lightning, they said, smote upon Celebdil, and leaped back broken into tongues of fire. Is not that enough? A great smoke rose about us, vapour and steam. Ice fell like rain. I threw down my enemy, and he fell from the high place and broke the mountain-side where he smote it in his ruin. Then darkness took me; and I strayed out of thought and time, and I wandered far on roads that I will not tell."
