Climb the crack with good rock. crux is probably halfway up. leave the crack and scramble up and left on chossy rock. you will go thru a slot, turn right, and reach the top
This crack is near the right side of the formation.
there is a shelf at the base of the crack.
to descend, walk west along the top of the formation, downclimb easy terrain(continuing west)until you come to a dropoff. down climb a third class slot which puts you on a boulder. down climb another slot(fourth class)on the right side of said boulder. at the bottom of the slot, turn
left until you reach the southside of the formation
Pro to 2.5"

Tick it if you're in the area already and looking for low-hanging fruit on your count list. Scabby gear, scabby route (just as Chris said) with more grains than any other route on the wall. Gear anchor, sit up top behind a flake or use the bolted anchor left (if you're belaying from up top).
This is not a destination route or really one for a beginner due to poor and lack of gear for more than 1/2 way. One time only........if that.
