Start on left end of ledge under some large holds. Boulder up about 15 feet to a shelf and get a crucial #1 TCU. From here move up and right to seam and follow it past 2 bolts. There is a subtle but good #2 camelot in a horizontal 12' above the second bolt. From here step right into crescent feature before moving back up and left on small but good holds through the bulge. Keep your eyes peeled for gear, there is plenty if you hang on to get it. From a stance above the bolt, move up easier ground to a long ledge at 100'. This is the belay ledge for multiple routes to the right.
Rap from 2 stainless wires or continue up any number of possible licheny variations to the top. If you traverse all the right you can also gain the "start" of Raven 13 at the large roof.
