Description 

Third class (might be harder) up the left side of the large cleft to the start of the route base.

P1. Climb up and left to access the slab. Run it out up and right to the first bolt. Follow the bolts to the two bolt belay.

P2: Follow two bolts straight up past a 5.9- crux. Pass two small overhangs and belay.

P3. Tunnel through to reach the top. You might rap the route after tunneling back down (will report later). FA: Spring 1984.

Location 

To find the start, scramble up into the cleft that separates the base. Where the scramble ends near the apex of steeper slabs, look up and left for the route.

To descend, I recall a rap, and it's on the topo, but I can't vouch for it yet.

Protection 

Mostly bolt protected but bring along a rack up to three inch (will elaborate later).
