Brass Balls, 5.10d

5th Pitch- 70’- 5.9+/ This is the best pitch on the best rock of the route. I considered combining these last two pitches, but had placed (got rid of) my #6 C4 in the previous pitch. If you brought the #6 and hold off on placing it on the fourth pitch, it protects the start of this last pitch well. Work your way up the large crack (#6) into the awesome varnished roof, protect with a #5 or #4 C4 at the edge of the large roof and make a physical move out of it to the wall above. Follow the nicely varnished corner to a fixed belay and ledge on the left wall.
