BETA PHOTO: Reluctant topo
Listed as a trad route in the 2012 guidebook, but fully "re"-bolted in 2012 anyway. The line as climbed avoids the corner to the right, and thus solid gear placements are few and far between, making this a heady trad lead. Either way, it's a fun and too-oft-ignored route.
On the right side of a clean(ish) buttress, find the bolt about six feet off the ground. Move up this to a thin horizontal and a rightward traverse. You can cheat into the dihedral, but then you would be skipping the physical crux, which is well-protected. Move back left at the diagonal crack to an interesting rest below a small roof. Pull up on small holds to a crack-ridden slab and the technical crux of the route. Finish on big jugs to the ledge above and scramble to the strangely-placed anchors.

One of the best at the grade and certainly much better than that fuckin' climb to the right...
Both Ryan and Greg climbed this and agreed the bolted line wouldn't go well on trad.
