A well known and marked trailhead has been established starting from Wasatch Blvd. The trail adds some time to the approach, but is fenced off from passing through any private property. Stick to the trail.
From the Ellsworth-McQuarrie belay ledge, climb up and right to clip your first bolt. Six bolts up this face and 100' of somewhat spacey, 5.10 climbing on crumbly rock brings you to another ledge (where the next Ellsworth-McQuarrie belay is located). Continue climbing up a thin crack (a .4 can be placed here). The piton at the top of this crack is missing so bring micros and cross your fingers. Traverse to the right and clip the next bolt. Four more bolts and up through the 10d crux brings you to the 2 bolt belay. A few more bolts and some gear will bring you to the Ellsworth-McQuarrie pitch 5 anchors. A 60 meter rope will get you down fine.
Don't let the crumbly rock deter you! It's not quite as bad as the top of Ellsworth-McQuarrie. Get out there and test your finesse on those flexing flakes...
