|This is a nice, clean crack climb. The upper half requires some larger pro (3-4 inch) and is most easily liebacked. If you traverse left near the top you can lower form the Elmer Fudd anchor, although reaching up to clip it will probably be the most exciting move of the climb for the 5.4 leader!|

|At what I believe is the top of the original route I decided to continue to the top of the formation to belay, so I could do the walkoff to the right. The remaining climbing (about 12 ft) looked maybe 5.7 or less, but as I grabbed a nice hold on top of a large plate in the least exposed middle section, it moved and threatened to fall right down on top of me. A bit spooked, I went left instead, which was more exposed, but allowed for a reasonable move to a mantle and then the top of the rock. It worked out, but a warning about the loose flake, which seemed dangerous.|

An easy clip of the bolt anchors for a 6'2" leader (me), but probably very challenging for the short.
Beware of two keyed (but loose) blocks in the top crack and one in the lower crack.
