Great climb, but face on right is a bit loose. Needs (and deserves) more ascents. If this were anywhere near a road, it would have climbers lining up to do it. Perhaps the 1.5 hour approach might disuade some, but there is other good climbing in the area.

Great sunny route. Bring thin nuts and a little sac for the upper runout, grade backs off during the run.

Placed both a black and blue alien on the upper dihedral.

Felt hard for the grade, and would probably feel less scary if it got more traffic. Long runouts above black alien and purple c3 sized pro. Save time and energy for the descent, too. Randy--one and a half hours? You must have the approach dialed! It was at least 2 for us.

Contrary to the guide, we found a quick and (relatively) easy descent to climbers left, passing beneath the Compact Physical .11c route. Well worth the "long" approach.
