Drop Out, 5.9
1st and 2nd Pitches- 60m- 5.9/ These are no doubt the choice pitches of the route. Scramble up to the base of the corner. There is a fixed station here believe it or not. More in place for a retreat than the climb. The first pitch is the most mellow. Running up the corner on great rock, stemming and placing gear at will. You overcome a small roof with a ledge out left. There are some pitons above the ledge for a rap/belay station. Continue up the corner to the next significant roof above (passing another small roof). Save a 2” or 3” for a critical placement in that roof. Make the crux move of the route by traversing out left on slick rock with no feet and a small sand covered (this is normally part of a waterfall) finger ledge. Make one hard blind move, then mantle up and left to a comfortable mixed belay.
