10 bolts of thought-provoking varied climbing with a tough finish.

This is actually a 3 pitch sport route. While I have not climbed the other pitches, the second pitch is approximately 5.9 and the third pitch is approximately 11- and looks awesome.

The third pitch of this route is an excellent stemming corner. From the top of Pitch 1, the leader can continue up and slightly right over easy 3rd class terrain to a group of small trees; here it may be possible to belay off of the trees+gear (we came in later from the saddle after realizing that there was a 2nd and 3rd pitch). Climb the short "approach" pitch (5.9) and gain a ledge with bolt anchors to the left. Climb the exceptional corner! All pitches are well bolted, but you might bring up something to supplement the trees for the first belay.
