Description 

Starts up the face just to the left of the first pitch of East Wall. The first pitch is a retro bolt of the original route sporting reasonably spaced (new) bolts and a two bolt anchor for lowering off. The first pitch is rated 5.10b/c PG13(ish). Most party's stop at the anchors or continue up the East Wall route. If doing all three pitches, continue up to the East Wall ledge and belay there. The second pitch winds more or less strait up following dikes and the occasional gear placement. Make your anchor short of the top under a series of small roofs where gear permits. A short pitch leads to the top.

Location 

Just to the left of East Wall. Look up for a bolt then work your way to it. Yes, you get some good gear before you get to the bolt.

Protection 

Cams .5"-2" Nuts, 1 set.
