The route begins in a short right facing open book that may be the crux moves. After liebacking the book to a series of broken ledges, continue following the line of least resistance upward. Avoid going too far to the left initially. Good climbing leads to a rocky terrace that is then followed to the left and thence the final short pitch to the summit. Descend the gully constituting the Left side route. Two ropes are necessary for the rappel.
About a hundred yards uphill and to the left of La Escuela, Left Side.
Standard Yosemite rack. Can be led entirely using passive gear.
