The proper route climbs up a rotten open book at 5.9 until the crack out the roof is reached. I climbed the first few moves into the dihedral, Placed a green Alien, and traversed to a large ledge to the left. I then followed a few thin and discontinuous cracks up to the roof (s for the var). Once at the roof, do an awkward sequence of 'horizontal stemming' to gain the lip, and pull through on bomber hand jams. The feet are very friable on the moves out the roof. This can be a rope shredder if the follower hangdogs!
