This route begins at the base of a steep chute on the right side of the east face and features a very nice jam crack. Climb up the initial bit of the chute, veer right into a nice hand crack that gets a little awkward. Continue in this crack to it's top, then traverse a bit left and take another short crack and face to the top of the formation. You can either set your own anchor or run the rope over to the bolted anchor on top of the Billboard. Rappel.


Nuts, small to #3 Camalot. Bolted anchor on top.

I seconded this line, though we didn't summit. Leader built a belay anchor and I followed through and over to the rap rings on Driving Limitations. Fun, but very short.
