Description 

P1 .12a/b Start by climbing up to the chimney of Sandman, then begin to traverse to the right to a piton, clip a LONG runner to prevent rope drag. Turn the corner and work your way to the crack that goes up the spire. This face climbing is the crux and is protected by drilled pins. Work your way up the beautiful crack passing a couple of pins higher to the belay. Stoppers and #1-#2 Friends protect the crack nicely.

P2 .11a, Climb the face above following the pins, then traverse to the right to gain a flake then clip the last pin and on to the top.

Rap with 2 ropes from the anchor.

Location 

Start about 60 feet to the left of West Point Crack.

Protection 

Medium & large stoppers, a few cams 0.75-2.

Kor actually didn't climb this. He's perplexed as anyone why it bares his name.
