P1) Boulder up a thin crack/lieback (crux) to start (it may be easier to climb high and skip the pro on this section) which widens and starts to curve right. Near the top of this crack it peters out and difficult face moves past a bolt lead to a bolted anchor in a dish. It is possible to rap off here, but the climb continues.
P2) From the belay climb right then up past three bolts until under a large roof. Pull the roof and continue up the crack as it eases in difficulty and ends on the top.
A walk off is located to the climber's right, down slabs until one reaches the edge of the rock, after which one can go left (east) around the entire formation or right (west) downclimbing through a corridor past the climb Bikini Whale.
This is yet another excellent route on an excellent formation. The first pitch alone is worth doing with some nice moves straight away and a surprise for the finish, but the second pitch is also worthy and together they make another route that should not be missed.
