Description 

Start on the detached block and move a little left following a crack through what appears to be a shattered face but is WAY solid. Finish on the ledge.


Protection 

The route goes with all stoppers and Tri-Cams

Gear to 2 inches. At the crux you'll want a small nut, tri-cam, or a small cam.

The part of the route above the pillar is short but sustained, and I've heard loads of people describe this route as "pumpy."

At least two people I know have broken bones trying to lead this route: be sure you get a good directional as you leave the top of the pillar.

Is this route to the right of Prime Rib and Degrade Your Sister? The route description says "detached block" and the only one in the area I know of is right by those routes. I could really investigate for myself but I'm feeling awfully lazy. Thanks!

Yes. Next route to the right of "Degrade My Sister". You climb up behind the big block and start the route coming off the top of this block which makes the starting moves proper of the route a bit sketchy on the lead as in not so much for lousy gear but just make sure you place it well and often so that if you fall you don't go hitting the block as in the examples Doug alludes to above. This is a really good route for the grade otherwise with pumpy, devious, and sustained climbing and good gear to protect.
