This perfect corner is located on the ledge above Mailbox. Plug small gear to protect the corner then take on an exciting crux through the roof. A #5 Camalot can come in handy for the roof but not necessary to safely protect. To protect your follower from a potential big swing on the upper traverse place a .5 Camalot.

Very Nice. Some very thin gear down low, and a super sweet crux up high.

There is a key .5-ish camalot placement to protect your second on the upper traverse.

Pretty tame for the proposed grade. The dihedral is much easier than it looks (maybe 5.9) and the crux up top is only one long move between two good holds. Stellar route though!
