P1) Climb up to a solitary bolt, make difficult moves past it and then run it out to a bolted belay on a dike.
P2) Head up the arete passing 3 more bolts then run it out past the last bolt to bolted anchors on a ledge.
Although listed as a two-pitch route it's very easy to combine the two into one long pitch.
To descend there exists several options:
- Scramble up an awkward crack from the ledge with bolts to the top of the formation. From here downclimb/scramble to the west down a rocky gully and then circle around the toe of the formation back to your pack. This should take about 10-15 minutes if you hit it right.
- Rap the route from anchors after the second pitch (165') with two (2) ropes.
- Rap 85' from the top anchors down and right to the anchor atop the first pitch of Comic Book. From here a second 85' rap leads to the ground. This is the easiest way to go as it requires a single rope. Not advisable if other parties are climbing the Comic Book route.
