Tried starting up the flared groove and quickly decided that, for me, 5.11 friction is easier than 5.8/5.9 groveling. Seems more civilized to clip the first bolt of Spuds and head left.

You can climb Gargoyle Gardens (5.7 gear) and then continue up High Desert (5.10a gear and bolts) to the top. Makes for a long fun pitch that still lowers with a 70 meter rope.
