Start on the "Rock On" crack/dihedral; pull onto the block and the first bolt is a little reach to climber's right from there. Move right and up beyond the bolt and if you have a super wingspan like I do you can clip the second bolt from comfort. Then do some fun moves pulling on juggy blocks and slippery feet to clip the third bolt. Few more fun moves and scurry up a slab to the anchors.
The start and belay are in breezy shade later in the afternoon.
Main Wall, Far Left (Photo 1, route 9 in the Messier guide). To the left above the north climbers trail, shares a start with Rock On.
One or two green (0.75) C4s for the start, then three (four?) bolts. There are rap rings on the wall behind the anchors (you'll be space rapping into "The Chimney").
As of 8/29/2012, the right bolt at the anchor (i believe it was a rawl stud and a metolius hanger) is loose leaving the nut twistable and the hanger spinning 360 degrees. Use caution, replace, or back up.
Bah so apparently first time around I went too high before going right, so I missed the meat of this climb. Clip the first bolt and start moving pretty much hard-right. The sequence is very particular and involves a lot of swapping of both hands and feet to stay balanced and avoid barn-dooring while moving around the rounded corner.
