DescriptionFree Advice is usually worth every penny you pay for it, and in this case it was no exception. There is nothing wrong with this climb, but it's not a route to line up for either. Do it if you are in the area and think of it as a freebee.
The route crux may be getting up off the ground on a horizontal (big jugs) and to a second horizontal slightly above - which becomes a right-angling, curving, upward-pointing flake.
Pull onto the face through the two horizontals, which is the awkward crux. Continue up and right on the flake, placing cams and stoppers in its thicker points for security, and climb off into a slot to the right. You will end up in a cool slot/chimney system from which a small amount of wandering and scrambling will return you to the ground just West of the base where you started.
