At the east end of the Finktion wall Look for huge roof. Start near giant prickly pear cactus. Overhung start to 90' of edges and sidepulls, stays on arete mostly. several cruxes, awesome exposure!

I would suggest extending some draws beneath the bulges starting at the very first bolt to avoid bad rope drag near the top.
