DescriptionA few tricky moves come right off the deck. Ask for a careful spot from your belayer. Then, an easy wide crack with good pro leads to a ledge with a bush.
Place gear high as leaving this ledge and the bush is the crux of the route (perhaps 5.7). Look for face holds on either side of the crack.
Steep crack and face climbing (5.4) with good pro take you to the top of the route. Look for the fixed anchor immediately atop the crack on the left. Be very suspicious of the two older bolts in the summit boulder.
