DescriptionBegin from boulders on the far right side of the great southwest face slab, up and left from the start of Perverts in Power. Climb 4th class up and right on a low-angle slab that steepens, with a few harder (5.8 R) friction moves leading up to the first bolt. (This is the original line; to lesson the seriousness of this section, you can now belay at the Sky's the Limit anchor, or clip it for pro).
Climb steeper face past 2 more bolts (5.10c) then cruise up easier slab climbing past 2 more bolts (5.7) to a small flake (2 to 3 inch pro). Continue up the slab to a belay ledge with a bolt anchor.
Descent: Two rappels (both less than 100 feet) will get you back down.
Alternately, solo off left across the top of the face (exposed class 3) and descend a smooth slab down the north shoulder (class 4).
