After a new first pitch, the route follows the best three pitches of Milk Run before following cracks above and a final dyke finish. The best pitches are the 10b and 10d fingery corners (3 and 4) of Milk Run, with the second one being the crux. The climbing on the crux pitch is exceptionally sustained on excellent finger locks and as much gear as one wants to place. The final real pitch (8) is a memorable walk sideways along a featured dyke.
Tantalus Wall. From the base of the wall, walk right, uphill, for 50m to a wooded platform. A V-crack marks the start.
Descent: walk off via the Bellygood Ledge trail.
rack fingers to #4 with triples or quadruples in the finger sizes for the blockbuster corner pitch. All but the corner pitches have at least one bolt. All anchors are bolted for rappel.

The first four pitches are rad, the rest, meh. The dirt ramp pitch is ugly and lame. The dike is good fun

I thought that the route was fantastic. The ramp is lame, but the other new pitches are a lot of fun. 4 stars IMO.

Anyone have more beta on the 10c dyke traverse?
Is it like the "5.9" start of Stairway to Heaven?
I am more comfortable with hard thin cracks, or at least straight up bolted lines, those traversing things spook me.
