Description 

Steeper and more pumpy than it looks. Starting on awkward holds that are interesting more than appealing, but they get you up through the first few moves (crux) which leads you to what I found to be the best part (the upper 3/4 of the route) following cool holds and balancy moves to a ledge where you step left to the anchor. The last few moves to the ledge is a solid second crux so fight the pump.

Location 

Just right of the obvious arch of Alaskan Arches (5.11d) on the front, steep (south-facing) wall.

Protection 

5 bolts to anchor.
