DescriptionPitch 1: 5.9
Follow the bolts and pull the cool roof, and then ramble to the anchor.
Pitch 2: 5.8
Continue up the slab until you reach another anchor.
Pitch 3: 5.5
Head up a shorter pitch to gain the "shelf". Shift the belay over to the start of pitch 4, which is to the left and heads up an obvious blunt arête and face to the right of a chimney.
Pitch 4: 5.10b
Head up on thin moves to a chain anchor.
Pitch 5: 5.5
Ramble up the final, short pitch. From the anchor atop this pitch, you can scramble slightly higher to the "top-out" of the formation if you wish.
Simply rappel the route. Be cautious as the rappels are long for several pitches.
