Directions:  This route climbs the arete immediately left of DRAGON CURVE, then continues in the same line up the final dihedral.
Description: You have to wonder if anyone would describe the FA as a "saint"...
    Pitch 1: Climb the arete on its right side for several feet, then move a few inches left to a crack system which soon returns to the right. Gain a small triangular niche, level with and about eight feet left of the third piton on DRAGON CURVE. Continue straight above the triangular niche a few feet to a good belay ledge. 50', 5.9

    Pitch 2: The major dihedral of the Recess is above the belay stance. At first, it begins as three closely spaced dihedrals. Climb the right-hand one to its top where the three dihedrals become one. Follow that one to the top of the cliff. Protection is mostly hard-to-place small wires. Save a #1 Friend to safeguard the final move. 60', 5.9

Gear: Standard Rack
Descent: rap the route
History:  July 23,1987 - George Hurley and Joe Hayes
