The start of the route is on the left side of the formation, to the right of a gully that leads to the top, on a ledge you can scramble to from below. You will see a prominent black streak above leading down to the start (see picture).
Pitch 1 (35 meters, 5.10a): start on a ledge to the right of a small detached pinnacle, around the corner from a shallow verticle cave. Follow the steep, slightly overhung, small finger crack up past a small roof, continue up and right to a good ledge.
Pitch 2 (25 meters, 5.8): go left up a flake from belay ledge, to the left of the black streak, steep with good holds, top out on blocky summit, 10 meters away from the hiking trail.
Gear: single rack to 4"
Descent: walk off down the hiking trail from the summit.
