This sport(y) excursion begins on the left side of the true base, behind a giant boulder.
1) Go up 25' past 2 bolts (recommend a stick clip of bolt 1) Reach righ to bolt 3, then further right 10' to a pedestal. Move up past two more bolts (crux passing bolt #5) to a low angled area. This is where it gets interesting. Traverse right and slightly downward past three bolts to a bulge. Step further down and right, reach out to clip a bolt, then make a difficult and airy move to a belay station. (5.11b - 130')
2) Continue more or less straight up, passing 5 bolts to the leadge/ramp left of the What's My Line start. There's a healthy runout after the final bolt, but the climbing gets progressivly easier. (5.11a - 80')
The rock at the beginning is still a bit crunchy (hence the stick clip recommendation), but gets better as you ascend. All of the difficulties are well bolted.
Draws and a couple of long slings for the traverse.
