Alternate start to the crest--good for skipping a party that might be slowly pitching out the first pitches. Maybe 5.8+? Follow the left facing corner past bail slings. When the corner gets too steep, tension traverse a few feet left (C1) up to a steep but easy unprotectable runnel (PG). Continue up a full 60m rope length and belay ontop a buttress leading into the true crest. Another 30ft 5.5 pitch up the buttress joins the crest.
