Description

On the north face, near a bench, is an easy dihedral that goes up for about 20ft. before reaching a large pod. Traverse right on questionable cobbles to another ledge to gain the second right facing dihedral. Take this to the top, squeezing through a narrow opening as you top out on the summit.

Walk to the left to find an old guard rail and scramble back down to the base

Protection

I soloed this route so I can't give a play by play for gear, but a rack of nuts could potentially protect the initial dihedral, but I doubt they would hold in the choss. Plus once you're on the traverse, besides having bad rope drag, you'd still have enough rope out that you would probably deck before you ever tested the gear. If you're going to climb this route, soloing is probably the better way to go.
