Arete to blocky ledge to improbable face. The upper face looks like 5.12 slab from the ground!
At the right start for Rites of Spring (see Marty Lewis guide), climb the tiny crack corner to arete (just left of the leaning corner), join the blocky ledge of Rites of Spring for 20', then head left up the face.
6 bolts, tiny pro for start (#2 Lowe ball or black alien), 1" cam, 2-3" cam. 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks.

This two star rating is an understatement. Actually it's one of the finest routes of its grade in the canyon.

I think this is pretty challenging for 5.9 - has a couple of tasty mantles.
