Description

P1: climb the obvious corner off the large block at the base, up to the roof, traverse left and belay near the end of the roof 30m
P2: climb a corner out the left side of the roof, head right and belay below the overhang 20m
P3: overhanging jugs until your brain almost explodes, belay either before the lip or you'll have to go all the way back to where you can find gear ~20m back from the lip
Descent: up and over to the big ledge below the summit, head east and look for cairns to lead you into the descent chasm. There's a rock with a hole on top of where you actually down climb into it. A few easy sections of down climbing lead to the Golden Terrace, a vegetated ledge you can continue east on and loop back to the base of the route. Beware, continuing down the descent chasm from here looks plenty sketchy

Location

Starts right above where the trail to the main cliff deposits you.

Protection

stoppers, stoppers and more stoppers, small cams and a few cams to #3, plenty of runners and a few double length runners for slinging horns and chickenheads.
