A popular climb with two worthwhile and contrasting pitches.
1) HVS 5a, 25m. Follow a flake/groove then move right past a tree to gain a bigger flake/corner. Climb this to the break. Often done in its own right and pleasant enough.
2) 5c, 15m. Struggle desperately past a peg on the bulge and thrash up the groove above and on into the trees.

Bottom pitch is more like E1 5b.

A great route. I did it in 1 big 40pitch, the lower hvs is not tiring leaving great exposure for the upper pitch! Bring lots of quickdraws and a few bits of bigger gear.

First pitch is tricky HVS 5a** and worthwhile in it's own right.
