Description 

Interesting route for "up and coming" trad leaders.

P1: Climb up and right to a couple of small, left-facing corners. Use the face and inside corners to continue moving up and right, aiming for the large ledge at the base of the south end of the Cockscomb. The route finishes up near the P1 belay for Old Ladies Route.

A good alternative is to break the route into two pitches. On P2, work up and left and climb to the top of Humphrey's Head. Rap off Humphrey's Head to Luncheon Ledge.


Location 

Lower Broadway Ledge, about even with the right edge of Humphrey's Head.


Protection 

Standard Seneca rack

We went a full 165 feet up to the intersection of Old Ladies Route.

Great climb, and the corner stemming is fun. Good gear throughout and far preferable to A Christian Delight just next door.
