The '92 Vogel guide shows a TR that starts off of C.S. Special and then cuts left after the first bolt - avoiding the crux. The rest is fairly straight-forward face/slab. The guidebook gives this a 5.10c rating, but it's a lot easier than C.S. Special.
It's an ok route but perhaps not worth the time with superior lines to either side.
Start as for C.S. Special and step left into the face after the first bolt.
TR. Use the anchor for R.M.L. and an optional handsized directional.
