|Penitente - Inner Canyon
Halfway between Captain America and the Bullet the Blue Sky area is an orange face above a rounded ledge. The first move is a really long reach to a large pocket and the first bolt. If you can't reach the pocket, consider aiding up, since the best climbing is above on the face. Continue up to the ledge and head up the face on pockets and jugs to a final difficult overhang and the top.
5 bolts to anchors.

Tough to get established on the rock followed by a way reachy move to the good pocket. I didn't like the ledgy fall potential going to the third bolt. Felt tougher than 11c but maybe just because my finger tips were pretty chewed up by the time I got on it. Anchors over the top are a bit awkward to get to and clean.

This climb is sweet. The first move is reachy, but super fun. The rest has something for everyone. Definitely worth it.
