Description 

-Climb on the Arete to the left of Rusty's Crack. This includes big throws and a lock off to a blind hold(5.11+). Crawl up onto the ledge. Here you can build a belay(for 2 pitches)or bring long runners for one super pitch (much cooler).
-From the ledge climb up and left to jugs. Make a big move(5.11-) then start working your way back right all the way to the exposed prow. Top out at the prow. Bolted Anchor.

Location 

The feature at sunset that you can't miss.

Protection 

Camalots= .3 .4(two) .5 .75 #1(two) #2(two). Place for #3 on the ledge. 60m rope. Bolted Anchor.

Note: There is a high heel move at 10ft to get to a #2 placement. You will hit the ground if you fall before that piece. Be smart.

Very cool route, bring a bouldering pad to suss out the initial boulder problem if this grade is around your working level.

Essentially face climbing with gear. Amazing exposure to be had on this lead!
