P1. Pretty casual 10a up the corner to belay on a small but comfy ledge.
P2. It gets real here with pretty sustained 5.10 climbing. Continue up the corner, launch left across the face, and then keep on for a full 55 meters of interesting and exciting climbing.
P3. Wow! Another full rope length up what looks from below like a super low angle crack. In fact you get perfect hands in a flare, tips laybacking, and a final face crux that is out a bit from your gear back in the corner. You don't really want to fall here- partly because the fall would suck and partly because you've already come this far.
Just left of X-15.
Doubles from #00- #2 camalot. 1 #3 and 1 #4. Contrary to Handren's book, leave your #5 behind.
Save a #2 for the last moves.
Finishing up pitch 2
The starting flare. Pitch 3.
