Obvious aesthetic arete with scoops in it. Climb fun 5.10 to the arete, aggressively slap and delicately layaway the arete until you can lunge for the ledge. The beta on the arete is devious, but when unlocked, gives the feeling of levitation. Continue up the overhang past a couple more bolts to the anchor. Got the first clean TR burn the day an Egypt Air plane went down in the Atlantic.
