Description 

This pitch has two fun sections of climbing but it is too discontinuous to earn more than one star.

Climb the dirty open book to the left end of a ledge. Move right and then climb the face past two large horizontal breaks to another ledge; this one has a large pine tree on it. Up and left on easy rock for 25 feet or so to small platform below an overhang. Immediately above you will see a thin crack and a narrow v-slot. Climb past the overhang at the crack (crux) and through the v-slot to a belay ledge. From that point you can make a single rappel or do the second pitch of Zachariah.


Location 

The start of Interiah is 50 feet right from Easter Time Too and up a slight hill. Look for a ledge 15 feet up with a small tree at its right end. The very large chimney that marks the start of Zachariah is at the right end of this ledge, as well.

Protection 

Standard 'Gunks rack.

There are a few sweet moves on this route but the dirty start, pine needle ledge traverse, and easy section up top do detract a bit.

I found that P1 had two distinct cruxes; the first one with gear at your feet (if you are a shorty). P2 used to be a "6"... it's hard to believe that rating. I found this climb to be fun despite the fact that P1 was a bit dirty and the early portion of P2 had some suspect rock.
