If you choose the "scary slab" option as indicated in Ian's ST guide (which is a heady move of 5.8 protected by a micro nut) you will be rewarded with a stellar 5.8 hand crack and this 5.9+ flare and offwidth finish directly to the summit anchor. Well worth the price of admission. However, be solid on 5.9 OW because it's unlikely you hauled a #5 Camalot up there and that's what this beaut takes for pro! So good!
