Description 

Can be done as either one or two pitches. The mid-way belay ledge is a fun place to chill and watch the action. The first half to the ledge is a 5.8 munge but worth the effort.

Location 

The middle route on the headwall. Shares and anchor with AMS. See beta photo.

Protection 

5 bolts on the headwall.

If climbing this in one pitch, it is helpful to do some back-cleaning and use long runners on the 5.8 approach. Whether climbed in one pitch or two, the super-steep and surprisingly technical climbing on the upper headwall is well worth the effort to get there!
