Vaino Kodas on the prow.
This route offers up two fantastic sections separated by a commodius ledge. Climb the prow with big reaches to hidden jugs, mantle, and take a nap. When you wake up take a stab at the crux face, then into the gate. Pulling through the roof, through the gate, and onto the ledge is like going through some kind of crazy re-birth.
Located on the right edge of the West face. Characterized by its beautiful prow and the "gate", a slot through the roofs that loom overhead.
8 bolts to ring and chain anchors.

The lower section, though not the crux, has really elegant balancy movement.
The crux is very height-dependent. It felt very hard for me, and I'm 5'9".

Just plain burly from the headwall on to the top. Really fairly straightforward, just physical.
