Climb that climbs the obvious tower of the left wall. The first pitch is 5.8 and goes to the base of the big roof. The second pitch goes out the roof to the right via bolts (10d). The third pitch goes up and left up the Triton Tower (11a). The Third pitch has a very short crux which is well protected.
No monkey business

Traverse pitch (2) is very memorable. No difference leading or following this one, except you get to watch somebody else do it first when following. The tightest bolted pitch at the wall yet still the scariest I have been on. I guess my worry was how I would get back on the climb if I fell. Pitch 2 sets this route apart from all other routes at the wall, and is worth your while.

Fun tightly bolted sport climbing.
No goofing off on this one.

An awesome route. I loved leading the second pitch, I can't wait to do it clean next time. An awesome set of well protected and exposed pitch with nothing under you but a large drop. So much fun! A must do!

For the most part, this route is pretty easy. The hard parts last less than 30 feet in total, although this climb still gets three stars for the exposure. After all the great slab climbing, you may have a hard time transitioning to jugs with poor feet, which partially contributes to the grade.
My partner and I chose to end the first pitch at the intermediate rappel station so that the second pitch is more than just a ten foot traverse.
