This climb heads up a hand crack to a left to right diagonaling crack, which leads to a wide crack to the top. The crux is passing the bush growing in the middle of the traversing crack. Look hard for decent feet! A little gritty but a good climb nonetheless.
The start of this route is on the left side of the formation. Start up the hand crack then traverse out to the right. Reach a wide vertical crack on the right side and head to the top. Use open shuts, directly left of the finish (the open shuts are part of 5 bolt .10c route).
Pro 3/8" to #6 Camelot. #1 Camelot on the initial vertical crack. Small cams on the traversing crack (yellow and green alien, also a #2 Camelot helpful). The upper vertical crack takes a #5 and #6 Camelot (be sure to use slings to minimize rope drag). There are open shuts at the top, which are part of a bolted route next to the upper crack.

Is there anyone out there with ANY beta on this climb at all?
I've wanted to try it for a while, but a vague description of an extended off-with at the top is disconcerting.
