Clean, sunny granite all the way!
P1. (10-) Easier-than-it-looks slab up and slightly right to the base of the shallow, left-facing dihedral.
P2. (10-) Nice nobby climbing up the corner for about 100 feet.
P3. (10-) A short, harder section then ramble up easier ground for about 60 feet.
P4. (10-) The steep, bulging crack system on the left to the top.
To the left of Airhead are 2 left-trending, left-facing, shallow corners. Shoshone climbs the one on the left.
Standard (mainly small to hands).

Good fun. A shorter route for this wall, but equally good quality rock. The Crags & Lumpy Ridge's ledgendary route author Scott Kimball lured me out in hopes it was an FA, but alas the fruit had already been picked. The plumb LFD system is very, very obvious.
On the first pitch; what looks to be blank, unprotectable climbing, continues to reveal small edges, which also allow TCU placements.
Others will find that the headwall will provide many exit options at all grades.
