Start left of Skull Fracture below three bolts 15' up on a slab. Climb up easy terrain and clip the first bolt. Climb sustained 5.12 slab climbing to the third bolt. Work your way left several feet at third bolt and then up to a jug where angle eases and a red Alien or nut is possible to place. Continue left several more feet to first or second bolt on The Temple depending on where you traverse. Climb The Temple to the second roof. Stay under roof and climb the crack up and left to a shallow, left-facing corner and a stance. Keep your balance as you clip a bolt on the arete to your right. Climb a couple moves up corner, clip another bolt out right, and the make a big move out right onto the face. Climb straight up the face moving up and right at the last bolt.
It's easiest to descend by scrambling off to the west and then back around to the south face.
A standard rack with some extra quickdraws. After pulling over the steep face, work your way up and right to the top. We make an anchor on thin gear about 5' from the top. There is not a bolt anchor up top as of yet so have some extra gear for an anchor.
