Start up the 10- arete left of the Flying Scorpion face routes, head up onto the fuzzy looking 11d sustained face with diagonaling groves and finish the last 12- pitch over the roof with a slight runout to the anchors.

4 pitches-10a,11a,11d,12a/b


10 bolts with optional yellow alien for the finish

The 3rd pitch variation was apparently used to bolt the true left line. (Info per Dane's book). We climbed is 2/10/15 and really enjoyed it. Never secure in 100 feet with exciting clips, but fun thin climbing. Felt harder than 4th. Would love to hear more input. Also, do first 2 pitches as one to avoid hanging belay, okay stances at other belays. This route was fun and should be climbed more.
