5 pitches of good climbing on clean rock, with the 2nd pitch being the crux. Scramble up the slabs to the obvious corner. Last ptich is mostly easy scrambling If you are camping on the slabs across from Haystack; there are great views of this climb. Descend via the goat track.
Pretty much in the center of the wall, right of the railroad tracks and left of the great chimney.

We simul-climbed the first long pitch to the big ledge at the base of the steeper climbing. Three high quality pitches leads to another big ledge and then one more pitch to the top. Might want a couple of extra thin hand size pieces.

If you go by the Steve Bechtel guide, we found he was a off on pitches and length. It is about 450 feet to the the corner. The way we went did not seem like 5.2, but had a few 5.8 moves. All pitches are rope stretchers. The corner pitch seemed about 10a. A standard rack to #3 is fine. We had doubles, but it would be nice to have a few more hand pieces and a few smaller pieces. Awesome route!
