The Title Track 2nd pitch.
This route was a real score for the FA. Ground up, onsight, all free. It is a fun traditional romp up the center of the Eddie's High Somewhere formation.
Pitch 1: Begin in the center of the wall below a left facing corner/chimney. Climb up the corner treading lightly over the pasted blocks at the bottom. Near the top of the pitch there is a stack on the right that also requires care but can be avoided by holds out left. This pitch is fun and better than it sounds. Belay on a nice ledge at a 2 bolt anchor. 5.8, 80’.
Pitch 2: Climb a clean splitter hand crack. Belay on a large sloping green ledge at a 2 bolt belay. 5.9, 90’.
Pitch 3: Move to the right across the ledge and up a wide crack/chimney using TCU’s in horizontals for pro. Belay at a 2 bolt anchor near the top of the formation. 5.7, 90’.
Descent: Rappel the route or walk off.
Single rack to a #3 Camalot. Doubles in the hand sizes may be nice.
60 meter rope.

Fun route. I had my eyes fixed on the splitter up pitch #2 so I ended up climbing the crack system just below it for the first pitch. It takes gear well, has a fun challenging bulge to get around (go left of the bulge!), but it's dirty and needs traffic. I'd rate it a 5.9+. Pitch #2 was a tricky 5.9 too. The rock is superb and I will definitely be returning to do some of the pitches on the main wall, iron Hayden.
