Climb a hand crack and face up to the first bolt, the next section (the crux) trending left requires several small cams in small cracks to the second bolt. Step right and again climb up past the third bolt, then trend right to the fourth bolt on the way to the anchor. There is a super stopper placement below some blocky handholds on the way to the fourth bolt. Don't pass up gear placements.
Climb starts at the toe about ten yards downhill of Paydirt in a hand sized crack. Rap the route.
Gear and bolts. Take a light rack: small to medium wires to a black Metolius cam (an additional gold Camalot can protect the start), three blue Metolius cams are useful in the small cracks, many standard trad draws. Bolts and chains at the top.
