An easy start up an unprotected ramp starts feeling a bit spooky as you move onto the face. You could also do a direct start which is protectable with small gear.You'll start out using face holds to pull the roof, then the crack higher up.


Look for the left-leaning crack which is between the house-size boulder and Dihedral.

The gear on this route is pretty poor until after the roof/corner section. If you fell at the, for the most part unprotected, crux you would be in for some pain. The top can be protected well though.
