second route of the day. Actually enjoyed this corner climb. One piece of gear did pop, but I placed it knowing I had gone some distance without a piece, and wasn't sure when the next was. Set up a mini belay anchor system for Louis but then used the 2nd nut of that size as my first gear placement, and both nuts of the smaller size in the next two-slightly daunting. Nice route though.

After failing the Brown Slab, I seconded this route easily. Start on the ledge to avoid gear being pulled out.
