Start with a crimpy boulder move to the first bolt. Follow four more bolts up the overhanging face on suprisingly good but sharp edges. join the route Pearl Sheath at its last bolt.
This route starts 5 feet right of The Black Dagger on the big boulder leaning up against the South Face of the Monolith. Both the approaches for the Back Door (detailed in the guidebook) or creeping along the base of the monolith work fine.

I've done this route numerous times now, and I do like it a lot. Although it always seems really hard for the grade. At least to me. In comparison to other 5.12a's in the park this could be the most difficult. I feel okay giving this a 5.12b rating. It has great movement, a low crux, and is mostly comprised of longer moves to great edges with some options for the finish depending which way you break off.
