Easy climbing up a dihedral leads to a roof and the crux. Move right at the roof and commit to pull yourself over a ledge to the anchors. Not much pro in the first 20 feet but the climbing is easy. Despite being protected with gear it feels like a face climb and is probably one of the easier 5.9 trad leads at the cliffs.
A relatively clean dihedral to the left facing roof, nestled between broken columns to your left (start of candy ass) and right (start of prominent crack).
