Start this route at the large ramp at the bottom of the SW face.
Two easy 5.2 leads take you to the bottom of a short 5.7 layback. At the top of this layback there is nice ledge. Set up your belay on the far left side.
From this belay traverse to the right and upward one pitch to a nice belay ledge on the SW ridge.
From here it is an easy full pitch 5.5 traverse left following a ledge and crack system that ends at football ledge.
From football ledge climb the obvious crack system that starts with an awkward off width crack right above the ledge. follow this for four pitches.
When the crack system ends traverse up and right
