DescriptionFollow the left slanting finger and hand crack (5.9) to where it ends at a small ledge on the arete.
Next, slab climb up the arete past 4 bolts. There is optional small gear between bolts 2 and 3 and a friction crux (5.10b) at the third bolt.
You can stop at the ring anchor here and a single 70 should just barely make it back down. (Tie a knot in the end.) If continuing, do not clip the anchor for pro. It will give you impossible rope drag and set up the leader to have the rope behind his/her leg.
Climb the left facing corner to the left of the anchor past 2 bolts with some funky technical stemming and smearing (crux 5.10d) to a good ledge. (If you wanted to break the climb up into 2 pitches for some reason, this would be the place to do it.)
Easy crack climbing brings you to a last mini roof crux (5.10a). Proceed past 2 final bolts to the upper anchor and belay ledge.
It's best to climb this route as one mega 65 meter pitch, but be careful of gear management and rope drag. If you do break it up into two pitches, do not belay at the first ring bolt anchor, as it will set your leader up for a nasty fall.
