Description 

In the center of the SE face, find a crack line that goes through a "slot" to the top. There is an old piton on the left side of the groove just below the crux. Be sure to clip it with a long sling to reduce rope drag.

Standard rack. This eats small cams. Use long slings, not QDs to reduce drag. There is a 2 bolt anchor at the top of the slot. It is a good lead for a new 5.8 leader. A 60m rope is required to rap!
