Under Toe (5.8+) : Humphrey's Ledge

Directions:  The climb starts up the beginning corner of Soul Survivor, 20 feet left of the start to Shifty Eyes; an obvious flake on the right face marks the start to the route.
Description: Nice mixed climbing.
       Pitch 1: Climb the corner of the first pitch of Soul Survivor to the top of the initial buttress. Protect high and left and step right around the arete to the flake (small gear) and up the face on good holds past two bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings. 45,
Gear: Standard rack and draws. (Cams from #2- #3 are helpful at the start).
Descent: Rap the route.
History:  August 11, 2010 - Chris Graham and Bob Ahearn

It looks nice, was glad to here it went at such a modest grade and looking forward to getting on it.

From a description point though are you not stepping left around an "arete" to the flake? I don't think that is a corner...

Hey Grammy,  Bob,  I enjoyed leading Under Toe on Sunday.

Nice features on good rock; fun climb.

Nice work Al! I throw a .4 camalot in the the second one as well. Great feet and holds out left too. Most people get sucked into the flake and only look at the holds (which are thin) on the right. Pretty fun face climbing after that first bolt huh?  :)
