Locate the climb by identifying three new glue-in bolts in the center of the north face. Scramble up blocks to gain a ledge.  Make face moves in the corner to gain the left side of the horizontal crack.  Hand traverse right placing gear to below the first bolt.  Make technical face moves past several bolts to the crux.  Make very engaging technical moves with few/no foot holds to gain the scoop and clip the final bolt.  

This classic route packs a lot of good climbing in with four bolts. The face above looks blank and intimidating from below, but just enough holds appear to allow passage at a reasonable grade.

Start by scrambling up to the horizontal crack system. Hand traverse to the right across the blank wall (gear) and engage the upper face. The crux comes after the third bolt and is a little heady since the feet disappear. Rap from the anchors above the arete.

4 bolts and one piece of gear in the 0.5 to 1.5 inch range
