The route begins on an easy, although run out face. Climb to the big horizontal crack about forty feet up. It would be wise to construct an anchor here, because this is the only pro to be found for the crux. Continue past the bulge, and mantle up to where you can gain the crack system. Follow the good crack to the top.


This route is located in the center of the Main Buttress, right of Blue Monday. Walk off or rappel the route to get down.
