From the flared V-notch at stop work up to the thin crack on small nuts, micro cams, cam hooks, rurps and birdbeaks. Crux is likely passing the long rectangular block wedged in the crack about 25 feet up. Once at the roof make a move or two right and then back left at a horizontal. Some 5.6 slab moves will get you up the slab to the ledge and the anchor.
A great aid pitch for the intermediate aid climber. Good gear is had though there are several body weight only pieces. Be careful in the first twenty feet until i reliable piece can be placed.
While a great line on its on this is also the first pitch of the full length climb Spectacular Spectacle
After you have gotten yourself and all your gear into the pit. Locate the anarchy symbol. The climb starts in the flare to thin crack directly left of this graffiti.
To descend rap from fixed gear (two fixed nuts as of 06) on the ledge at the end of the route.
