Without the guide book in hand, I thought I was getting on Blockade Runner, so I was pretty stoked to see what I'd done on-sight after getting back to camp. The start of this is no doubt easier than Blockade Runner--still on my list--but the crux bulge will give you a good fight. I went straight over, in line with the bolts. My wife continued up the corner a bit then stepped back left, which may be easier, but I haven't done it. You'll be thrilled to find the no-hands rest at the base of the broad dihedral. A great, great route!
