The nice crack system just to the left of Vanishing Point. Follow the same approach to reach the base.
The climb shares the same first 15ft of scrambling as Vanishing Point. Below the roof, walk to the left end of the ledge and make a dicey mantel onto a shelf which is protected by an old pin. Walk further left past a bush to reach a splitter finger crack. Jam on up to the next overlap, then undercling out right. Pull through a cruxy sequence on face holds and sidepulls to gain the next crack system above, then climb easier terrain to the top.
The rap anchor is off a tree, and is shared with Vanishing Point.
This is a difficult lead that requires twin ropes and several long runners to reduce rope drag. Bring a good selection of small wires and micro cams, some extra .5"-.75" cams, and a couple bigger cams (3-4.5") for the undercling traverse.
It can also be toproped with two ropes, after leading Vanishing Point.
