This route is the natural continuation of Arupa which takes you to the top of the north face of the Grand Auditorium. It can definitely go entirely on traditional gear.

From Boot Flake, head straight up the wide crack, placing gear to protect runouts between bolts (or skipping them entirely). When you reach a small roof with a ledge on the left, stay right and continue up the face to a bigger ledge above. Lots of loose stuff here! Continue up the sharp, stemmy, thin finger crack to an awkward finish through flakes onto a spacious ledge. Do not use the old mechanical bolts but rather the titanium bolts nearby.

Walk-off is recommended. There is one short 5.5 section to downclimb.
