9th Pitch- 25m- 5.8/ This is a heady lead for 5.8. Typical Yamnuska traverse. Move straight up from the belay and clip a hidden piton, traverse out right to a small ledge and clip another. Then continue straight out right and actually down climb a move over very exposed terrain clipping another piton. There won’t be much in terms of natural pro on this pitch. After the exposed down climb move, look for solid feet to balance your way rightward until you can reach good jugs to climb up and right to a modern (2009) piton below a crack and to the left of a corner.
