70M rope required. This route used to have a hard seam start but now after some thick vegetation died you can avoid this to the right. Above is some steep crack through the bulge above the break, a testy sequence up the orange face and an incredible finish. Unfortunately the big ledge and the easy slab in the middle break it up a bit so it isn't sustained enough for another star. A couple of longer quickdraws are nice to have above the crack bulge section. Once you reach the dihedral near the top an obligatory Mr. Clean pose facing out from the wall almost guarantees the ascent.


Ten to fifteen feet right of the start of Pre-op Therapy.
