This route is the classic of the wall. The first pitch features a 5 star splitter hand crack that is sustained 5.9. There are variations leading up to the crux pitch which is aided (c1) up the right seam, or free climbed up the face to the left at solid 5.11 protected by 2 fixed pitons. The last 50 feet of the pitch are not to be underestimated loose 5.9. The route was first climbed to the top by Carl Oswald and Matt Porter. First free ascent by Andy Hoyt and Ben Trocki.
