Overview
FA: Greg Barnes, Karin Wuhrmann, Jonathan duSaint, September 2007.

Burly, technical dihedral to a long pumpy lieback. Steep, powerful, and tenuous climbing up the initial dihedral is tightly protected with bolts and gear, and then a lieback with thin gear leads to a flake lieback pumpfest with bolts once the gear runs out. If lowering from the first pitch, itís a couple feet longer than half a 60m rope. If continuing, the belay is basically a hanging belay and a butt-bag is nice.

The second pitch starts with thin moves that ease quickly to a cool, knobby, airy arÍte that is the left arÍte of the entire mile-long face of Medlicott.

You can just barely rap with a single 60m rope Ė tie knots in the ends.
