Corkscrew, 5.12a (A0)
3rd-4th Pitches- 50m- 5.7/ Make an exposed traverse out right for quite a distance. You won’t be able to protect it with trad gear. The pitons are hard to see, but they are there (2009). There is a bolt as well, but I missed it. Stay low when in question and follow the good micro ledges. Eventually cross over a bulge/arête and climb up to a solid ledge below an obvious left facing corner. Continue up the corner for pitch four placing a 2” and 3”, saving a 2” and 4” for the belay crack above. The upper section of this corner is a little overhanging and slick with a deck ledge below that portion. Do a gear belay on top of the corner which is really a detached pinnacle of sorts. The bolt ladder for the crux pitch starts at your head.
