The classic looking dihedral left of Air Head, stem, lieback, a bolt protects the last part, the guidebooks says 5.10a, but more like 5.9-, You can top rope it, off Air Head anchors, clip bolt, but bring some gear and lead it, just wish it was longer.
It is left of Air Head.
Light rack, nuts, small cams to #2 Camalot, one bolt.

Good climb. If you bring a trad rack jump on this. Definitely easier than 10a, but I would give it a solid 9, if not 9+.

This crack zips up real nice with nuts and cams #0.3-#2.
No need for TCUs or the bolt.
The flake on the arete between Gearhead and Airhead is very loose.
