I think the initial crack up to the ledge would have been easier if I'd liebacked it, but wanted to get good gear, so climbed the awkward off-width with arm bars and foot cams. Some work.
Above the ledge this route somehow reminded me of the SW Corner of Headstone Rock. The hanger-less buttonheads make for good pro when you slide a small nut on them.
Fun route, and a good way to start the day.

|Sliding nuts over bolt studs adds some charm to this route. There are now bolts with rings on top; a 70m just lets you rap into the gully to climber's left.|
