P1: Climb the wide 4-6 crack on the left side of the west face and and continue up to the belay at the base of the huge right facing corner feature.
P2: Start up the corner, then move right and climb the hidden thin seam up and right, then move left up an easy 4-6 crack.
P3: An undignified start leads to an outstanding finish. Avoid the Belly of the Beast and set your sights on the triple cracks. Take the steep middle crack. You can belay in the alcove or continue up to the base of the X-Men Cracks.
P4: Follow the excellent finger crack left, then move right and continue up the crack through a thin technical section to the top. Manage rope drag.
This climb is located on the right hand side of the formation and climbs the West Face. This route climbs a north facing ramp into the large alcove.
The descent is a quick walk-off. Head straight back to the south, then traverse west towards the obvious sandy couloir, which will wrap you back around to the base.
