6th Pitch- 100’- 5.9/ A “spectacular” (as Handren describes it and I concur) steep corner pitch with a slick black varnished wall coming in from the left into another wall with some large features higher up. At first the crack is wide and looks hard to protect, but in reality, you can sink large gear in as you work your way up to the 2nd half of the corner and into the more challenging climbing. The gear keeps getting smaller down to .4”. Use a combination of chimney and jams to wrestle your way to the final face features which land you on top of a huge ledge. Belay with any variation of gear into a solid crack above.
