This route is the second sport climb on the right side of the west face. Scramble up a low 5th class ramp system from the right side of the climb. There is a single belay bolt on the ramp. Follow 17 bolts through continuous 5.10 and 5.11 terrain, with a crux at 2/3rd's height coming out of a depression in the wall. The final 40 ft to the anchor is an endurance test on solid 5.10 climbing.
Rap with 2 ropes. I have heard that a single 70M rope will work, but I have not tested this theory.
