|Grotto and Base of the Great White Throne
The crux is a couple chimney moves down low (large cams protect) but the bulk of the climb is a clean handcrack in a shallow left facing corner. It steepens a bit near the top so make sure you save some gear. If the leader takes up a camera you can get some great shots of the second coming up.
2 bolt rap anchor. You need two ropes to get down.
This is near the west end of the south face, on the base of the Great White Throne. Rookie Crack is just right of Grasshopper.
Mostly thin hands to wide hands and something big for the start.

This climb is pretty sustained and longer than it looks. Seemed a tad harder than 5.8 to me. Bring a larger cam (a #4 or #5 Camalot) to protect the beginning chimney.

I second what Nathan said about bringing large gear for the chimney start and it being more sustained than other routes. Bring two ropes.
