Jason Ivanic leading the first pitch of Aerial Bou...
Pitch one – Climb the dihedral via many cracks. Continue through the roof moves above. (Watch out for two potentially loose blocks in this section.) A strenuous and awkward crack leads around the corner to the right (passing a bolt) to a small ledge and a gear belay. 5.10
Pitch two – Make a few interesting moves off the belay through lichen covered rock. Knobs and smears take you up and left to a long, low-angle chimney. From the top of the chimney, follow cracks up and left for 20 feet and build an anchor. 5.8
Pitch three – Climb the slab above past intermittent cracks to a gear belay on low angle rock. 5.6
Pitch four (optional) – A class 4 ramp leads up to the right and eventually to a few easy fifth class moves which gain the stairs.
This route starts two rappels down the Offramp. (see photo)
2 sets of cams to 3 Calamot (maybe an extra .75)
1 set of nuts
Turning the corner at the top of pitch one.

A clarification: FA by Bruce Hendricks and Amos Clifford. My bad on the poorly placed bolt. (Amos)
