Follows a crack in a shallow R-facing dihedral to a stance before a right leaning finger crack which leads up a left-facing ramp through the crux. Lock and lieback to a stemming stance and clip the chains on the left.


Toward the left side of the Dark Side. Look for a clean, hexagonal break near the top which forms a nice-looking finger crack on its left side marking the finish for the route to the left ('The Virgin' 11b).


Gear up to 2 or 3" works well. Save a finger-sized piece for the finish.
Alternatively, there are 6 bolts, the last of which might be a tad awkward to clip.
