Lady Wilson\'s Cleavage, IV, 5.9
7th Pitch- 125’- 5.9/ The only climbing on this next pitch is after you scramble back right into the gully that now opens from the crack/chimney system below it. You come to a short and steep section right below a dirty and bushy tree. It is best to bring in the belayer to the base of this section. There is a rope (2008) tied to the tree that can be used as pro, but it has been there awhile. Climb an otherwise unprotected short chimney section, facing out and making a dramatic move to your right to reach a finger ledge with no feet. Mantle on up and traverse right by the tree. Bring up the 2nd at the larger trees above.

no Radek, you do not need the 2 7's and you will get by just fine with 1 6....that is all we had...I have no idea why Handren calls for so much gear....we protected it just fine with the 2 5's and that one 6.....the part I ran out is off route....nothing would help you there...just a bad one placement and a better two towards the end...way run out....but I combined two pitches this way...we sort of had a late start, and I was focused on getting the route done...we still were at the summit at 5:30 no worries...the climbing itself goes fast..cheers
