nice way to cap off a trip  Sucess!

We rapp'd this with a 70m rope. It was close getting to the belay but the rope reached. From the belay to the ground no problem. It was late in the day and there wasn't anyone else on the route either.

Great Red Book  Sucess!

A tad chilly for most I suppose..a Saturday and we were the only ones up that high in Calico Hills all day (did the long sport routes to the right as well). Corner does not see light until noon this time of day. We ticked it off early in the morning in case someone else wanted it. It was quite cold on the hands. I placed that number 4 too early on the 2nd pitch. There is a solid pocket that takes it as you start into the corner....but other options are there. Save it for the lie back further up where the corner bends right. You can slip a #3 in here as well, but only after you make the crux move of the route. Thought the lower pitch was quite soft....upper pitch seemed true as described on SuperTopo's topo which calls the face above the belay 5.8, the lieback 5.7 and the face above 5.6.
