This route follows the bolted face route but traverses to the left near the second bolt (crux). Use the far left face to ascend to the anchors. This route is rated 5.9 in Bay Area Rock, but most climbers agree that it is more difficult than Farewell to Arms, so a 5.10b rating is suggested.
Hike down to three bolt anchors for setting up a top rope. The anchors will hang over the edge, and this route traverses, so padding of the edge is highly recommended.
