This route ascends the textured face to the right of "Drugs". Climb up and right to the first bolt, then continue up and right on flakes and cobbles to a second bolt. Make some fun layback moves off of small edges (10d crux) to gain a ledge with a fixed pin at its left end (the moves through the crux are highly photogenic with a serene backdrop). Clip the pin and continue up left on some small edges (5.10) to gain a small left angling ramp which leads up to the anchors. If the finishing moves appear too intimidating, one can move up right on easier ground after clipping the pin to gain the anchors. The climbing is sharp and the route is short, but the exposure and setting makes it worth climbing!
Three quickdraws and gear for the anchors if desired.
