Stackpole’s first ever route. The first pitch drags you around to the South Face a little; the second pitch features the upper groove system on the West Face. It’s also possible to climb the variation start at 5a, which gives a better balanced and higher quality route.
1) 4c, 18m. Climb the accommodating groove, to arrive at the halfway ledge, then traverse leftwards along the ledge system to gain the foot of the groovy second pitch.
2) 5a, 14m. The clean groove is followed all the way to a good exit.
1a) variation start 5a, 16m. Climb the lower corner, then the steep groove above, using the short slab on the left to gain the belay ledge above.
