I am fairly positive that I was on the correct climb, but this would be closer to 45 ft than 75 ft. A little gritty from lichen, but surprisingly clean for a rarely climbed route. Solid pro and more than enough placements. Devise your own descent from the ledge, but there may be a hex or two already there.
