Bomber hand jam for your left hand. Bomber hand jam for your right hand. Both feet stemming between huge cutouts. Great climb! Mar 22, 2016
Related to geoff georges comment above, you might also save a .75 or Metolius 4 to the top section. Sneaks nicely into the right crack when the going gets tougher up top. And there certainly are anchors for this route now. I give it 4 stars for a 5.8 hand jamming masterpiece. May 29, 2014

if you are new to leading you may want to know theres a portion near the top that only protects with Camalot #2 on right or #3 on left for about 25', so don't use them up down low. Mar 12, 2014

Note: As of March of 2013, there is now a double bolt anchor at the top of this route. No need to bail left anymore. Mar 21, 2013

To echo the sentiment from above, bail on the chains for clip 'em or skip 'em, otherwise you end up having to scramble through loose crappy rock to the top which results in dangerous rockfall (I had to dodge a few large missiles while belaying). Jul 4, 2012

"Note that you have to bail left onto the next column over to reach the anchors, which are shared with another route whose name I've forgotten."

Chains to the left are "Clip ‘em or Skip ‘em". Nov 16, 2011
