Description 

Oklahoma Princess is more than OK!
This is a fun warm-up shorter route on the far right side of the north face routes. Locate a pillar-slab formation left of the gully formed with back side of Acid (there is actually a newer route on the backside of Acid, but i do not know anything about it). OP is approximately 100 feet right of the Knossos tiered base. Though mostly moderate climbing, there are some long runouts for the grade, and bolt spacing may seem a little further than the other routes. it may be possible to protect these with gear if youre feeling timid.

P1. follows the left arete of the pillar. fun! ends at a semi-hanging belay. 5.7.

P2. continue up the arete until you step right and up the face. possible to protect this move with some gear. Continue up the face to a good ledge.

Rap the route with two ropes.


Protection 

Bolts, and possibly some gear to supplement.
