High quality stemming and liebacking up the steep corner right of No Sleep Til Campton. Start on the first 4 bolts of that route, then traverse a bit right to get a couple small-to-medium pieces in a pocket and small crack. Continue up the orange face to the corner system (#5 or 6 useful but not mandatory) and follow that out to another rightward traverse on good holds, then a hand crack up to a nice ledge system with another bolt. Clip this and keep it together for the crux moves leading to the anchor. If you attempt to lower off from the anchor, a 60m rope may not make it all the way to the ground, although there is a good ledge about 40' up to belay your second from.
Moves: unknown
Descent: Bolted anchor
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry
Owner: Private

The dihedral on this route is excellent and must-do for 5.10 trad climbers. Take lots of runners and tie a knot in the tail of your rope if lowering off.

Pretty good. I'd probably give it an R for that traverse. Watch out for the wasp.
