DescriptionThis is an excellent route! The climb shares a start with another good climb called The Bush.
Pitch 1: go up the wide crack first pitch of The Bush and belay. I can't remember if there are bolts there, but it is a rap station.
Pitch 2: continue up The Bush about halfway, then traverse 20 feet right with a good crack for pro/holds. Belay at an exposed ledge, turning a corner, using hand gear and something smaller. This has a great position with a semi-hanging belay.
Pitch 3: this beautiful pitch traverses an exposed ledge right to a perfect, left-facing corner. I remember the corner to be wide hands mostly.
