Easy climbing on good holds over a small hollow flake with okay gear gets you up to the first bolt. Pull over a small roof up to the 3rd bolt where you traverse low to the base of a small left facing corner. Clipping the 4th bolt is delicate. Laybacking up the corner past another bolt to a slanting crack is the crux. This is where the original route moved up and right onto the rounded face above. Instead, make a big move (2nd crux) left to a great undercling them up on amazing holds into the bigger left facing corner which takes great gear and is fairly sustained up to a horizontal and stance out right at the end of the corner. Continue up the vertical face past amazing holds and a 00 cam to the anchor.
