Traverse left on a ledge. Pull a few steep, strenuous moves on the right side of the arete before pulling left onto the face. This section is the crux of the route. If you fall at the crux, the route's third bolt will not keep you off of the ledge below. Clip one last bolt which adequately protects slabby moves leading to a huge ledge.
Unprotected 5.4 face climbing leads to the summit--although it is possible to escape right by walking along the ledge.
In between the various bolts, expect little in the way of protection. This is not a sport route.
This is the hardest 5.10 at the cliff (much harder than either Great Race or the 5.10a alternates of Face Lift).
