The varied 2nd pitch of this somewhat retro adventure winds its way through some hostile terrain between two steep facing corners. The line is a drainage chute, and can take ages to dry out following wet weather.
The well protected crack splits the black slab. Step R to DBB under the overhangs R of the facing corners above.

Move L then up the L facing corner (the R facing corner, 16a, is grade 20). Crank the steep corner past the bolt (#4 CD handy) to the arete, then an exposed step R past the 2nd bolt (this is a great move!) to finish up the crack. Good pro with a full rack of CD’s; hexes are good too.
