Start on the 5.6 crack with a dead tree just right of Purple Haze. Easily combine pitches by continuing up the face moves off the rotten band and moving left to a large right facing dihedral. A pin protects the starting moves in the dihedral, which is just below the very thin crux - test your balance. Pull up the corner and move up and right to a tree and a mess of tat. Rap 85' to the ground.

Made two mistakes on this route - I started up the first pitch of Purple Haze (5.7 but considerably harder and less direct than the 5.6 crack) and also, AFTER punching through the crux, didn't make the move over the lip, sat on shitty gear and fell 20 - 25' onto a manky piece of fixed gear (a small nut). For me, the mental crux was getting onto the ledge that started the "second pitch" (which is bullshit as you are a trad climbing god if you can find a good belay where Rossiter found one). Anyway, turns out the moves that I was worried about and ended up taking a hellacious fall for were actually quite easy - I was within 10' of the anchor! Now I will have to go back for the redpoint - stupid me.
