Charge up the easy finger crack to the ledge and lay siege to the steep corner above. Cool stem moves on good rock lead to a powerful crux requiring a commiting reach. It is possible to tap the ledge falling from the crux, so place your gear well and have an attentive belay. From there gallavant up the crack to a final mantle onto the ledge.
This section of the cliff seeps heavily and is the last area to dry in the summer. As of July 4 there was only one slimy hold but not really an issue. As with most routes here it's a good idea to bring a brush along, especially if you might be the first one up the route for the season.
Left side of the cliff at the lowest point. R facing corner in the impossibly black rock.
Cams to #2, a few extra finger size pieces. Rap rings at the anchor.
