Description 

Start sitting matched on a unique, winged crimp in the small cave. Traverse right using the crack/slots and make a blind move with the right hand around the corner/arete to a sidepull sloper. Hold the barndoor and slap your left hand to a sloper that faces the wrong way. Continue up the left arete on some marginal holds and feet, eventually slapping your right hand out to the obvious sidepull on the face. Keep slapping your left hand up the arete and top out over the peak.

Grade can range pretty much dependent upon height. Shorter climbers will find it to be on the harder end of the range.
