Myster Z, 5.7

5th Pitch- 170’- 5.7/ The crux move of the route is on this pitch towards the top. Stem up the crack as it angles right and steepens. You end up below a significant overhang. Make an exposed, but easy, traverse right (double or triple sling any pro prior to this traverse). Climb the varnished crack at the right end of the ledge. This is the best climbing of the day. It is easy to protect and offers exposure and challenge for the grade. Once you pull over this section of straight vertical crack, set up a gear belay in small alcove of sorts on the left.
