UKC Logbook Description
Climbs the system of groves left of Jack of Shadows. The gear is a mix of trad and bolts (stems from the ethics of the time).

The first pitch bridges up then rocks over lest onto a spike then laybacks up the central fin using wide bridging to reach the belay. The second pitch climbs the grove to the bulge then stretches right to an undercut and stiff pull to easier finishing moves and a BB.
