Pitch 1: 5c+, up a pillar and onto the wall proper, offering superb face climbing on good, at times thin hods.
Pitch 2: 5b, like climbing a ladder, superb bands of rock, one good hold after another, before easing off to a big ledge.
Pitch 3: 5c+, from the end of the ledge, the best pitch of the route, and perhaps the entire area. Sustained and technical from start to finish, with an interesting change of pace two thirds of the way up.
Pitch 4: 5b, a mild but aesthetic pitch traversing up and left. A bit chossy at first.
Pitch 5: 5b (with 60 meter ropes, pitches four and five can be combined), moderate, pleasant face climbing up and to the left.
Pitch 6: 5b, another pleasant pitch of technical face climbing on small but good holds.
Pitch 7: 5c+, a brilliant, steep conclusion to the route on very positive holds.
Note: another, markedly more difficult route crosses the route and shares its second, third and fifth anchor. At the second anchor, make sure to take the pitch on the left. At the third anchor, make sure to take the pitch on the right. The other route finishes at the fifth anchor.
Descent is by straightforward abseil.
