SDS on good holds under the Quartz line, follow the Quartz line to a solid pinch for the right, then work your way out from underneath and move up to establish on the face and you're done. Down climb to get off.

Don't Top Out! It is just a bunch of choss and vegetation.

I'd suggest downclimbing (or traversing left if you must) after getting up the climb, since actually topping out involves highball belly-smearing through shrubbery.

Thanks for pointing this out. I have been meaning to update this beta for awhile, since topping out does not add anything to the problem and is just a bunch of choss and vegetation.
