Description 

This excellent summit pitch starts from Fang Ledge, just right of the the George's Tree belay. Lieback a thin, right-facing corner (5.8/9) right off of Fang Ledge, and head easily to a huge recess i.e.: The Box. Do the thin crack/dihedral that shoots out the left wall of The Box (5.9) to lower angle grooves. Decent climbing tends leftward where a belay can be made below the fine, left-facing corner that finishes George's Tree. One could reach the summit with 1 long pitch if rope drag was not a factor.

Added note: D. Snively, et al. did an undescribed variation to this pitch, a.k.a.: Swing State, which takes the very back, left corner of The Box, a vertical, strenous, right-facing corner that eventually blends back to the initial line, 5.10+.

Protection 

A standard rack.
