First pitch starts with an interesting handcrack and ends at a ledge. Traverse left on the ledge and climb up the curious looking flake. The flake ends at a ledge where you traverse again and set up a belay.

The second pitch has two variations. The original (5.7) takes the diagonal on the "X" that the route is named after. The variation goes straight up. The offwidth above the belay is 5.8 and crux on the second half is a couple of moves of 5.9+. Both variations finish on a short thin hands section to the bolted anchor.


The route is 75ft to the right of Black September. You can't miss the obvious flake on the first pitch of the route, and the cracks that make an "X" on the second pitch.


Standard rack to 4.5", nuts. Bolted anchor at the top of the second pitch.
