We did this route last week. Fun! The 5.9 move is well protected with a piton, and I backed it up with a #3 higher left in the crack. With your left foot, step up on a bulge. Swing your right foot up and get a little knob. Reach for glacier polish flakes and it's over!

The face climbing got my attention. Solid 5.8 moves 10' above the last bolt. I took a 20 ft whipper after the first bolt and landed below the roof (ouch).

After you make the top, you can top rope Cucamonga Honey (5.10b), Water Cracks (5.7, 5.8), and Werner's Wiggle (5.8)

A great day - short approach and great views

I remember doing this route in 198something. Good fists at the hop over and classic Tuolumne face climbing above on the half-moon-shaped breaks in the polish to the top. Got up to the belay, brought up the second. He looked at my harness and I had only tied into my leg loops.
