The "project" in the Ruckman guide above All Chalk, No Action. Good finger edges lead diagonally from the Touch Up dihedral heading toward the arete. Climb the arete (crux) to a good rest. The final feldspar-coated headwall should keep your attention. The route joins Touch Up at its final belay. Steep, exposed, challenging. Note: height-related crux.
Climb Touch Up, All Chalk or Revenge of the Nerds to gain the large belay ledge. From here the route heads up the overhanging orange wall/arete above. 60m rope is enough to lead and lower back to the belay.
