Sustained face climbing for the first 4 bolts, on a thin but elegant face. Trees have grown into the route, causing an added element of difficulty. Dennis Jackson's guidebook states that the route is 5.11- if you refrain from using the corners. The bolt line takes you far enough away from the left corner where it doesn't help much, and the arete on the right side doesn't offer any great advantage. After the 4th bolt there is a nice rest-stance before a small roof. Good holds pull you through the roof and the remaining 30' to the anchors.
A smooth face 45' to the left of Patience. There is bolted line to the left which is not on the topo or in the guidebook.
5 bolts and pro (for the top section) to a 2-bolt anchor.
