This is the big prominent corner leading to and past the right side of the giant roof on Lower S Curve, left of the Melting Point bolt line. Easy climbing up the corner ends at an obvious hand rail diagonally right out of the corner. This is the crux. While the route is well-protected, be circumspect about how the rope runs, lest you end up with horrendous rope drag. The hand rail turns into a small ledge which hooks up with the last 20 or so feet of Melting Point. Ruckmans' guide shows another finish, but I can't quite figure out where it is in conjunction with the line we did.


Rap from the chains on Melting Point (60m rope necessary).


Standard trad rack to a 3 inch cam.
