On the upper headwall of the north slab. Good route with delicate friction moves. The crux is getting the second bolt but it doesn't let up until the slab on top.

This is also a 3 pitch climb. Pitch one is 5.8, the second pitch is also 5.8 until you hit the head wall and take on a few thin 5.10 moves. This is just one of the possible cruxes, I found the very last move at the top of the slab just before moving onto the ramp trickier then the rest. Then again pitch 3 (Twisted Friction) is sustained friction for the most part.

Brooklyn Gose leading pitch one (Jinxed 5.9) of The Malediction Route. Egos and Friction is the next bolt line to the right of this one.
