Start up using the face on the right and holds on the detached, 8-foot pillar to the left to gain a good stance to clip the high first bolt. Follow more bolts making fun face moves on sharp rock. The apparent crux comes about half way up when moving up the face from a good ledge in a shallow dihedral. I tried not to use the right wall of the dihedral to "keep it real" but ended up putting a foot out there. Easier climbing leads to the anchors just above a small roof.
This is the first route to the right of Shelfish starting slightly behind a small detached pillar.
