65 feet right and downhill of "49", climb an obvious corner past a roof to a horizontal. Hand traverse left to the arete, then up the face (crux) to easier climbing, and the belay. Around the roofs above on the left, then up to the shrubs.

5 out of 5 stars The Nose/ Lady's Lament or Boldville Linkup

Started out on the nose but the hand traverse looked scary so I went up the corner and out right. Sammy led p2 up and left around this scary looking traverse. It was really fun climbing both pitches; definitely exposed on p2!

3 out of 5 stars very fun

Enjoyed leading this climb. Suffered horrible rope drag. Need to sling long every time the rope takes a turn. The route wanders, sling long. very fun, not sure I would put a budding 5.6 leader on this. felt very 7ish in many spots.

4 out of 5 stars Wow

This is a fun climb, but, not for the budding 5.6 leader. THis climb has everything...corner climbing, airy traverse, arete and crack. Lot's of fun packed into a 6. Felt more 7+ish to me.

3 out of 5 stars Nos Anchor

One of the 3 pitons that make up the p1 rap anchor was pulled out by hand, the other 2 seem fine, but we removed the bad one. Someone may want to replace it.

Didn't finish this route. Description in the Swain guide confused me, and I missed the traverse left. Ended up on the route to the right of "the Nose", and had to lower down because of rope drag and no remaining draws.
