Crux top out, with poor gear! Nick White grades at E2 5c.
Above 19 (around the left arete is Toltec Twostep) is a green wall with a shallow crack/runnel slanting right to left. Climb this to where it finishes (poor Friends) then finish up above with much fear and roundedness. A serious finish as the highest gear is not that good (and also some way beneath you!)

Sandbagged JD into trying it, then had no choice but to do it myself. One onsite on top rope, then lead clean with no pre placed gear.

Not really sure what to think, the gear is fairly good and solid, and the top out doesn't feel hard 5a/5b? Kinda bemused by the grade, but who knows.

"It's easy JD, no way is it an E2, feels like a VS [on top-rope]" cheers for the sandbag Ben! Climbed 90% of the route right up to the 'airy topout', almost took the fall and finished on top-rope - glad I gave it a go

lovely climb, honking feeling being so far above your last pro that had the potential to pop, still, in the bag.

Good route. Can't claim onsight as soloed up to crux a couple of times before. E2 5b seems fair as gear seems OK for the airy top out.

Not done since 1997. Bit dirty. Lovely climbing but I'm glad i didn't fall from the top! E2 5b in SDD guide.
