After an easy but steep start move up and left on good holds to a series of sloping ledges and a slab. Head up the slab to a thin crack where the wall steepens. Move up to gain a ledge and then traverse left through overhanging terrain on nice jugs all the way to the top corner of the wall.


Up and right of the Great Roof 20 feet above the start of Diurnal Pegs. After topping out move up and right on 3rd class terrain to a tree anchor. After belaying the second up move 30 feet right and rappell The Silver Sword.


Single rack to 2". A purple tcu protects the traverse across the ledge. There is a run out up to the slab but the climbing is not that difficult.
