DescriptionStart left (uphill) of howards slab below a small tree or on a detached block. From the block, make a few moves up a flake and head left up a ramp with a crack. As it splits heading left, take the upper crack. Traverse along the crack with good jams for about 30', then follow a weakness/crack and shallow left facing corner up to the top.
I found the crux to be the moves into the vertical part and the top out. The info on another site called this a 5.7, but i found it noticeably harder than Loki(5.7) and Chasm Crack (5.8).
LocationAs far left as you can go on the reflector oven, past the down-scramble and up the hill on the southwest facing side.
ProtectionI used a number of hand/finger sized pieces protecting the traverse, the ground follows closely up the hill and is never far away. Up to 3" would be good, you can get a #4 if you have one. The vertical section took smaller gear, down to 1tcu sized. Belay off trees at the top and descend by scrambling left down the hill.
