After a so-so first pitch this climbs into a great handcrack then eases into some "interesting" climbing above.
Pitch one: Starts in a left facing wall, right of Reunion with a large flake. Climb the flake and then trend right to a good belay below an obvious crack in a dihedral.
Pitch two: An excellent and stiff hand crack, be sure to go right at a right trending crack (easy to miss) otherwise you will be on a spicy 5.9 variation. With a 70m you can make it damn near the top otherwise belay where appropriate.
Pitch three: Without a 70m rope on P2 belay where appropriate and make a 3rd trivial pitch to the top. Beware loose flakes!
Finish by scrambling around to a ledge to the Coke Bottle rap anchors, 2 raps with a 70m to the ground.
Starts climbing large flake right of Reunion start.
Doubles to C4 #3 are nice.
The whole climb, should be self-explanatory after ...
