about 20 feet to the right of the obvious chimney. This route climbs a nice hand crack through the low, dark, patinaed section which gives way to steep but grainier climbing through the flutings up to a dike that brought about the formation of three molar-like "teeth." Climb through the teeth to even looser rock and on to the top.
Walk off the top to the northwest.

A regular rack of cams and nuts is fine for this short route. Finding quality gear placements is tricky but possible almost everywhere you need it.
