Description 

Start up the fractured rock on the left side of the east face, working up to a small dihedral. Work up and left past a bolt and then follow the bolt line up and right as the frequency of holds diminishes. The crux comes at the final bolt, passing a vertical section on thin holds, then on to a slabby finish to gain the anchor. Rappel to descend.

Location 

East face, farthest bolt line to the left.

Protection 

6 bolts, bolted anchor
