Use the same start as Who Do You Believe, 20' to the left of The Howling. Climb to the left of the pines on the ledge that is 50' high, and straight up to the roof. Jam out through prominent left-diagonalling hand crack that splits the roof at its widest point. Grab the lip and cut loose! A very easy first half of the climb leads to an awesome finish. By doing the first pitch of Deconstruction, you could reach the spectacular finish and turn this into a three-star outing. - Indy's Online Guide

Rope drag could be an issue when you get on the large ledge just under the last roof. Check it before continuing and if you have to belay from there and do it in two pitches. 


Look for the left facing flakes that mark the start of The Christening and go up and left of the optional rap station. Traverse maybe 10' left of the optional rap station ledge into the over grown dihedral and follow to next large ledge below obvious split roof. 


Standard Rack, double runners help with drag
