Starting on less-interesting, moderate moves you will eventually gain a stance looking up at the business, which is the last 50 feet of the climb. Follow the bolts heading up and right on crimps and underclings until you are following the very edge of the rock fin. At this point, you will be forced to smear on small foot holds right on the edge of the flake with nothing under you for what seems to be a long, long way. A few, less-exposed moves on crimps lead to the top and a nice ledge to sit on and take in the view.
Warning! Avoid hanging out on the flat spot underneath this route and Dolt if you don't really need to. You are in the death zone! The whole fin is exfoliating and rotting and dropping pieces, sometimes big pieces that can easily kill you. In 2013 a big piece of the top fell off that even included the anchors! (since replaced) Warn others and wear a helmet while belaying. Wait your turn well off to the side. Seriously!
