Start below the trail at the base of three obvious stacked blocks that lean into the cliff (this makes for a good climb to identify your location as well, as you can't miss it.) Climb up the blocks and onto the face up to the anchor.


8 bolts?

Alternate start on PDR if you don't want to deal with the leaning blocks. May 7, 2015

Another option is just clipping a long a draw at the anchor and continuing up the last few bolts of PDR to the right to make the route ~20' longer. Jul 31, 2017
While lowering off the leaning blocks, with partner belaying at bottom of rock, I ended up leaned off the block just due to gravity, and super slingshotted into the wall. Was able to get my feet up in time but it was scary, and happened really fast. Be careful, there is a lot of tension running down the rope before you get to the bottom! Oct 2, 2018
