This is the thin, right facing corner to the left of Prociutto (.10b).
Start on easy dikes for 10 feet. Once in the corner the angle kicks back. Mostly thin fingers with some locks leads to some loose blocks which can be negotiated to reach the belay. A 2 piton belay is in the recess on the left of the blocks. One can easily move to the right and belay at the 2 bolt anchor for Prociutto.
2 Pitons Protect the crux 5.9 moves. This is a nice sustained corner well worth doing along with Prociutto and Swine Flu.
It is still a little dirty on the face, but positive holds show up now and again.
- Please tread lightly when nearing the anchor, there is a large flake that is very loose. Negotiating around it to the left is easy. If it goes, Procuitto could take a hit.
