3 pitches. Two rappels with a 70m rope from the left, or walk off left. 1st 2 pitches get morning shade, third pitch is sunny all day. Gear: green alien/blue tcu up to BD # 3, with BD #s 5, 4, 3, and 2 useful for the belay on top of the second pitch. Start on Day Dreaming, then climb the second pitch of Day Tripping, but instead of heading left to the dihedral, move right towards the awesomely exposed arete and set a belay in a horizontal. When you're ready, launch up the awesomely exposed arete with fun moves and adequate protection.

all of the credit to Dan on this. I've followed him on a lot of rad lines over the years but this one goes down as one of the sickest! You cant find more exposure in the Red than on this line.
