Popular route that goes straight up the face for 500 feet. Very good belay ledges. Amazing views and shade in the morning. Route was done all on lead ground up by Paolo Benetti. Most of the climbing is easy 5th class to 5.7 and then there are a few short cruxes of 5.9. There is some loose rock, especially on the ledges, bring a helmet and be careful! DON'T RAPPEL if someone is below you. The walkoff is much quicker, safer and easier.
Hike up the gully to Ventana Sur sport climbing sector, and go 200ft further. On your left is the route.
Bring 10-15 quickdraws or alpine slings. Most pitches can be linked together with enough draws. All anchors have rap rings set up for a single 60m rope rappel. From the top you can walk off using a narrow ledge system than goes down and right towards the route Sirtaki. Look for the cairns to see the ledge descent
