Wagassa, 5.8

3rd Pitch- (60’) 5.8/ The grade seems soft for me on this pitch compared to the older routes in Snow Canyon. This is an all trad pitch. Move out left over sloping ground to some positive varnish and proceed up into the crack that rides the left side of the huge corner below the roof above. Place #3’s and #4’s at will until you get so a small ledge that takes small gear to pull out left. I used a #3 TCU by reaching up and out left. After that it is a little anticlimactic as you reach the top of the chimney above the roof. Protect in a variety of cracks as you bring up the 2nd.
