150m, 3 pitches. Considered "the best 5.6 climb in Yosemite." The route is surprisingly easy for a Yosemite 5.6 and has bomber gear the entire way. Each pitch gets a little bit harder.

Pitch 1: Many variations of chill climbing up to a nice ledge. Consider taking the more challenging variations to keep the climb exciting. Pitch 2: AWESOME splitter crack. Enough said. Pitch 3: This is the 'money pitch.' Remarkably good (yet small) gear up a thin crack and onto beautiful slab.

Rap with 2 ropes and make sure to tie knots in the ends. The rope will not hit the ground on the final rap. Instead it will lead to 3rd-4th class walking, depending on where you go.

Bill Sorenson and Jack Delk 1967.
