HVS 5a. Solid 0* route, worth doing. From the start of Desperation, follow the break leftwards until good gear can be placed just before crossing Grand Central Station. Step back right and up, and continue climbing left just above the break until reaching Piton Route. Hard to protect for the 2nd - quite some swing potential; a high runner just before the belay, on the second pitch of Great Central Piton Route Eliminate helps a bit!
Main pitch of Corridor, but seconded crux of first pitch of Great Central Station by mistake. Felt pretty sketchy and committing, with massive swing potential, although a fake runner helped in providing the delusion of safety. Did second pitch of Piton Route and third pitch of Central Rib. Good evening climb in pleasant conditions.
