Tooth or Consequences, 5.11c

8th Pitch- 35m- 5.11c/ The 5.11 climbing on this pitch (route) includes two moves at most and can be easily aided (A0). The fixed pro is a bit awkward in terms of protecting a lead fall at the crux on a sloping ledge below. From the belay, make a stiff slab move up the right side of the arête clipping a bolt. Once your left foot reaches a solid stance on the arête proper, extend your legs and find a hidden side pull on the right of the arete. Make a short dyno for the bomber hand rail above, clip a bolt while hanging and quickly mantle up to find more positive features above. There will be no features on the left side of the arête up to this point. The climbing eases into mellow cracks to the top of the “tooth”. A fixed belay is on top of the summit block and a fixed rap is on the right edge.
