This route is somewhat confusing to many people. Make sure you figure out where you go before you start. It follows a slanting ledge system, up and right then goes around a corner and up a left facing corner and left to a ledge with a bunch of ancient pitons. Belay here. Second pitch goes up and to the right.

If you are not careful, rope drag can be a real problem on this route.

Very hard route to follow. I got off route into some 5.9-ish territory. Also had horrendous rope drag. Take the advice of being sure where you are going before you start out!
