Way left of center, closer to Castaway Crag than the Central Buttress is a clean section of gray wall, to its left a continuous right-facing dihedral system.
1. Begin with a prominent, dog leg dihedral. Continue it as it bends back right past a soft iron piton than a long horizontal 5.7R stretch to either the Direct Starts anchors or higher from a wire sling flake, 5.9.
2. Faceclimb up into the crux stemming corner, (small stopper or cams), undercling the roof (3 inch piece) and make a exciting move onto a big ledge, 5.9+.
3. Jam a wide flake off the ledge, pass 2 pitons and the final roof, 5.8. Belay at a small stance.
4. Nice 5.7 buckets for 100 ft. to the summit shoulder. Walk off.
