3 pitch route. 1st pitch is Chocolate Corner. 2nd pitch, 12a stemming past bolts and occasional gear placements. This pitch is a bit heady with some bad rock above bad gear. Third pitch is the money pitch. Pretty short, but pumpy 5.12+ overhanging thin hands (#1 camalots) to a ledge. The first rap is tricky because it overhangs so much, it is difficult to get to the second anchor...might want to bring two ropes and rap all the way to the ground or the elephant man belay.

5 out of 5 stars beautiful route

I don't usually include hangdogs in my ascents list, but this three pitch line was so good that I had to. Just followed it, as I was being a puss that day. HARD techy second pitch, third pitch felt very much do-able.
