 Navajo Sandstone has been undercut and eroded by the Colorado River

A nice view of the lower good rock section of the route, following the central corner system
The Plank Traverse leaves the corner and crosses the big slab at the top left of the corner

Excellent bevies below the face

Nicely done, and well documented! I'd like to give this line a try in the fall...
