To find this route scramble via north slabs to north summit; from a scrubby pine tree near SW edge, rap down to the route.
7 bolts. #3 Cams for belay anchors.

Very sporty lead. Considered a rite of passage by some.
No bolted anchor, long slings are required to reach edge from the anchor tree.
It is possible to scramble down from the north summit to the belay ledge. Climb down into the notch between the north and south summits. Upon reaching the notch bust a sharp turn to the west and move down the hanging ramp/chimney system to the base of the route.
