Originally a R/X route that was rebolted in the mid 1990s by Mike Arechiga et. al. making it a more friendly and safer, beginner lead.
Hardest move is right off the deck. The rest is 5.easy
3 pitches of mellow slab bring you to a headwall and a big ledge. Here you have several options to finish:
1) Exit to the right (4th class) belay from the top
2) Follow the arching crack up the headwall, clipping 2 bolts (5.8)
3) Move over to the anchor on Guides in a Snowbank. Climb the steep bolted headwall (5.9/5.10-)
4) Move even further over on the ledge, and climb the unnamed 5.8/5.9 OW crack to the summit.
