BETA PHOTO: The first section of Downcast (just in the shadow)
The climb has two sections. The first 50 foot section is a nice large-hand crack in a left-facing corner. A smaller crack parallels on the left. You'll then reach a ledge with small trees.
The second 40 foot section...
Look for the largest left-facing corner. You'll notice that the ground drops off very steeply to the right of the corner and you'll see a couple of chimneys/roof systems (Black Clound and Journey to the Center of the Earth) to the right.
Large cams are very welcome in the first section. Suitable trees for anchors are at the top.

Fantastic route despite the bushwhack on the ledge. The 5.9 variation avoids most of the shrubbery by continuing straight up the corner instead of veering left at the ledge.
