Description

P1: climb the arête (5.8) into and through a short overhang (.10a direct) ending at a large ledge with belay/rap anchors, or about 10 feet below the overhang before the route steepens follow an alternative bolt line right (5.7 indirect) around the overhang then coming back to the direct line.
P2: follow the bolt line straight up the steep arête (5.7-.8 easier than it looks from the belay) to an overhanging bulge near the top. from here either climb onto the budge (tricky crux 5.10a) and continue to the top or follow the thin awkward ledge under the overhang to the left inside corner crack (5.7) finishing the climb on the rest of Bare Naked Solstice Party (5.7-8).
Rappel off down backside (one 50 or 60m rope) or down Bare Naked Solstice Party on front south side (two raps with 60m rope or one rap with 70m rope).
