Route Description

Pitch 1: Climb a 3" left-diagonalling crack & straight up a 5.10 slab past a bolt & piton. Gain a ledge and belay.
Pitch 2: Continue right, along an exposed ramp (5.11a A0), past 2 pitons.
Pitch 3: Climb straight up a 5.10 offwidth crack.
Pitch 4: Climb over a roof and up a 5.9 slab.

Approach

Hike to Animal Crackers. Continue 200 yards north of Animal Crackers. The approach is arduous. It took me about 75 minutes.

Protection

I recommend 8 cams(0.4"-2.5"), 8 nuts(0.3"-1"), 32 carabiners & 16 runners(24").

Descent

I scrambled down the north side. I did not dare to rappel using the existing hardware on the route. Rappelling the route might be awkward anyway because it traverses so far right.
